Tuesday Trigger: Home Sweet Home

 I'm playing with Canvas again!
This time it's embossed...ohhh ahhh...It's easy to do but first here's a looksy of the card.
 (tried to get a better angle so you can see the embossing.  It's more pronounced in person, I promise)

And here's my inspiration. This weeks
Isn't it all things warm-fully home-made and shabby.

TIP:
 Embossing fabric (or in this case canvas) can be tricky...or is it?  If you just roll it through and emboss it without treating it, the embossing will fade.  So what's to do?  Add a layer of "Mod Podge" to the front surface and let dry.  If your an impatient Betty like I am, you  can rush the drying time by using your heat embossing tool.  The surface will curl but once you roll it through it flattens out.
