"Loon-y" Birthday

Another "guy" card for my stash. While I had my Tattered Angels stamp set out last week, I stamped this frame and cut it out. Then I had to figure out what to do with it. I thought a nice loon would work well, so I used the Repeat Impressions stamp and stamped it with gray. I trimmed it down to fit under the frame, which I had mounted on foam squares. I embossed the cat tails on the left side with a Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! I stamped it to match the frame, and I also used matching cardstock to mat the bottom layer.

Edited to add: The embossing folder that I used on this card is a border folder. No trick involved - just used the narrower folder! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Love the card but don't understand how you embossed on left side only using the folder - what is the trick? Thanks - you always challenge me but this has me stumped!
