Hi everyone, a couple of years ago I shared a card that continues to draw interest from people who have seen it. Unfortunately, the embossing folder I used to create it retired and there was nothing in the Stampin’ Up!® range that I felt was a suitable substitution….until now! YAY! The Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder is perfect for this technique. You are going to love it and you will be addicted to making this style of card just as much as I am. It’s super easy and the result is so beautiful!
Take your Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder, add some Basic White cardstock and run it through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I’d suggest making a few panels at this time because trust me, you won’t stop at one. Next, take your Stampin’ Blends and colour the embossed (raised) part of the design. The ink from the Stampin’ Blends will naturally bleed into the cardstock so use a gentle hand but don’t worry too much if it does bleed. The overall effect will still wow!
Finish off the card by adhering the panel to a card base and adding your sentiment and any bling you might like.
I’m sharing three cards based on this technique today. The first two cards have the embossed image facing up. The third card was coloured in the same way but when I adhered it to the card base I flipped it over so it’s a much more subtle look. I just love it!
Here’s the first card…
Here’s the second card…
Here’s the third card…
They are just the prettiest of cards, aren’t they? I could just colour them all day. I cannot wait to make some more and play around with some different colour combinations. So much fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
