Cardstock Challenge

This is my kind of challenge. It showcases the Core'dinations and works perfectly with my clean, simple style of scrapping!
I wanted to play off the beach idea, so I took some Core' and embossed the heart, initials, and date to mimic drawing in the sand. I also tore strips of Core to represent the water. I added some Ranger Holographic Embossing Powder to the torn edge of the Core' to show the light from the sun dancing on the water. The following are a few pics of my process and I have a few tips/trick to show you. If you want to make 3X3 photos from 4X6, just take a 3X3 clear stamping block to use as a frame to decide where to make your cuts.
Tip #2. To write letters/numbers backwards for embossing, just lay a set of stamps upside down and it's so easy to draw them!

Thanks for the challenge, Debbie! If you're inspired to join in on the crop, check it out here.
