COUNTRY FLORAL

This is a super easy card that allows the embossing folder to do all the work!!!03.25.19 Country Floral rhinestone

The Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (available thru Sale-A-Brations) provides the texture for an absolutely beautiful card.  One thing I noted when working with this folder is that the embossed cs layer shrinks in length a bit after running thru the Big Shot.  Adding 1/16” to the cs length when cutting compensates for the loss.

We designed this card simply – adding rhinestones or pearls, a sentiment framed in Gorgeous Grape, and a small bow.  The frame for the sentiment is formed by punching or die cutting the same shape as the sentiment, cutting it in half lengthwise, and adhering it to the sentiment so that the color shows slightly on both the top and the bottom.  All label punches or dies can provide this frame effect by cutting the frame piece in half so that it will overhang the sentiment.

imageThe sample above shows the finished card with rhinestones.  The sample to the right shows the finished card embellished with pearls.  Which one embellishment would you like to do?

I have seen this embossing folder used many ways – embossed on white cs and with the flowers colored using Stampin’ Blends, inking the embossing folder so the embossed and debossed areas contrast, using only small portions of the embossed folder on a card.  With our Lasting Lily card, we are going to use the Country Floral embossing folder to make a lovely frame.

April Stamp Camp (can you believe it is almost April?) is being held on Thursday April 4th from 12-6 pm, Friday April 5th from 2-6 PM, and Saturday April 6th from 9 am-4pm.  If you have a conflict with these times/dates, please let me know and I will find a date/time that works for you.  The cost for Stamp Camp is $14 for 4 cards.  If you wish to make additional cards, the cost is $3 each.
