Hi everyone, a few weeks ago I shared a couple of cards that generated a bit of interest including some requests to show how I created the top panel. The card features the gorgeous Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and it is perfect for the technique I am going to share today. I know you are going to love it! I think you might even become as addicted to making cards like this as much as I am. It really is super easy and the result is so lovely!
I’m also sharing some new examples of these cards as I did a Facebook Live this week (my first one where I’ve made a card live! – that’s not AT ALL nerve-wracking. haha) to show exactly how I made this style of card. I’ve now uploaded the replay to YouTube because I know it can be so hard to find a Facebook Live after the event. Please note, this video hasn’t been edited so you’ll see all warts and all, and it does run for nearly 35 minutes.
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.

They are just the prettiest of cards, aren’t they? I cannot stop making them. I find it really relaxing and I love how pretty they turn out. So much fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set, die set, etc, also comes as a part of a bundle or suite, I link to all so that you have choices. I also link refills and basic supplies like adhesives which correspond with items used to make my projects. These links take you to my online store.
