I'm not fat!

This card is very much in the vein of the one I posted yesterday, however when I saw Dawn French's post on Facebook with this sentiment I just had to make another card to use it.
This time I just embossed the centre section of the card, by replacing one of my Cuttlebug B plates for a couple of strips of thick cardboard under the band I wanted to emboss. I edged this with a couple of hand scored lines.
The image is unmistakeably Penny Black called 'Quack?', which I coloured with Spectrum Noir pens.
I added the sentiment directly to the cardstock using Dina's Handwriting font.

I used this sketch from CAS(e) this Sketch.
My version is certainly VERY CAS!

At Dynamic Duos the colours this week are Basic Grey plus a colour of our choice.
Here I have used So Saffron, with images and sentiment  from Clearly Besotted. Once more the embossing is from Cuttlebug's Chicken Wire EF.
In fact either card could be submitted for either challenge!


  1. I love these Chrissie! That EF is fab and love the duck sentiment! ;)

  2. Two smashing cards.

    I, too, am too short for my weight!


  3. I love how you've used your folder... will have to have a play with my big shot to see if I can 'manage' it! I'm sure you are going to get so much use out of the embossing folder, it's so versatile.

  4. So beautiful cards.

  5. Beautiful cards, thanks for the tip on embossing a section of card too, must try this :) Cathy x

  6. Both cards are perfect takes on the sketch, but that duck stole my heart! Love the sentiment, too!

  7. So wish Stampin' Up! would have a chicken wire embossing folder. I love it and your card is awesome! Thanks for playing Dynamic Duos this week!

  8. Chrissie, I came by because of your gorgeous feather card, but that cute duck completely distracted me! I've got a great big smile on my face now. :-)

  9. Congrats for the shout out at CASe this sketch Chrissie!

  10. Congrats on your honourable mention Chrissie! That duck is truly the cutest and your embossing perfect for the sketch as well!
