  2. I love Halloween. Who doesn't love googly eyes on a Halloween card! The last one with the multi colored circles with the bats in the center, is my favorite.

  10. All of your card projects are so fun and creative! I have a question about the one with the circles; did you die cut the green circles and then dry emboss or emboss and then die cut? I’m not quite sure which should be done first. Thanks!

    1. Thank you Joy!! I always die cut first and then emboss just so the embossed pattern doesn’t get smashed when I run it through the machine. However, for this particular project I actually used pre-embossed paper. So I guess either way really works :) lol
