No Embossing supplies needed! You can make the card one of two ways - either with embossing or without! Check out Mynnette's video for both ways! I hope you'll give it a try! :)

yay, I did it. I watched the tutorial first, and then watched it again while I made my card. I do have one question, why white ink and then VersaMark? I didn't see any difference between the two.
