The Spellbinder heart was dry embossed with a Sizzix embossing plate. These work really well in the new Grand Calibur - I used the A Base Plate, the Sizzix Folder, cardstock, the large GC brown mat, and a Cuttlebug B plate. It was a snug fit but embossed beautifully and I didn't use anything to moisten the paper. A plus was the brown mat picked all the pieces of paper out of the cuts on my Cuttlebug B plate so I had to throughly wipe down my brown mat, but the embossing was worth it. It's every bit as deep as a Cuttlebug or Sizzix Folder. Since I was really trying to focus on the background, I colored Tilda in pastels. I was pretty pleased with this card.

I wonder....I happened to be watching Animal Precinct on the Animal Planet last week. Actually, I had been watching Dogs 101 which I love as much as I love Cats 101; you learn such interesting things about dogs and cats if you watch this show. Anyway, they were talking about an ASPCA officer who often works undercover so they couldn't show his face. But he was wearing a short sleeved shirt and had very distinctive tattoos over his arms and hands. I'm guessing anyone watching that show would be able to pick him out with no problems - just a note for the producers of these shows. On a related note: when I was in the Marine Corps I was told that a tatoo is just another way for the police to identify you. I never planned to get arrested, but the thought stuck with me so I am tatooless.
