I Need Some Toilet Paper

This is a dual purpose post with two cards. I had one more of the VSN Mini challenges to do - and it was a technique I'd never done before. Seriously, I'd never even heard of it before. So it's going to double as my Could Ya? Should Ya? Would Ya? Yea! series card.

In this monthly series, I strive to try something out of the norm... i.e. a size of card I rarely use, a technique I've wanted to try (or try again), an unusual fold, a card for a bizarre holiday, etc. I also plan to try a new recipe on these days - not a card recipe, a kitchen recipe.

Misti's Got TP? Challenge was perfect! Check out the details for using TP and embossing folders - HERE.

Confession time... I didn't use TP. Instead I used Kleenex (because it seemed to have a little more strength to it. Then, to be safe, I did another embossed piece with paper towels. I used both of them for cards.

The Kleenex Card:

The Paper Towel Card:

I lightly added some Distress Ink to the embossed piece to highlight the snowflakes.

I had fun with this new technique. I'm glad Misti challenged me/us to try it.

And don't forget... there's the added feature of my Could Ya? Should Ya? Would Ya? Yea! series - try a new recipe. What's for supper? One Pot French Onion Smothered Pork Chops. I hope we like it.

Last month I made Crock Pot Cube Steak, which we liked so much we've actually fixed it again already.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
