Hi everyone it's Stephanie
here with another card to share!
For today's card I used the Lacy Flower stamp set
to create an embossed resist flower on my card. I stamped the large lacy flower onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Once it was embossed, I used an ink blending tool and distress inks to add colour to the entire background. When I had all of the inking complete, I spritzed water on the entire panel and dabbed off the excess with paper towels to create a distressed look.
I trimmed down the stamped and inked panel slightly smaller than the card base in width and then cut a diagonal edge on the bottom. I adhered the panel to the card base and added a strip of gold glitter cardstock to the bottom. To create the sentiment, I diecut the Awesome word die
from the same gold glitter cardstock that I used for the strip and I also cut it from black cardstock. I adhered the two together with the gold one on top to create a shadow effect.
I stamped and white heat embossed the word friend onto a black piece of cardstock, trimmed it into a strip and adhered the Awesome word on top. I adhered the whole sentiment over the embossed flower and added some clear glitter to the flower with a clear glitter marker. I completed the card by adding some clear sequins with gold stickles in the center to match the gold glitter strip and word.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I'll be back later this month with one more card to share as a guest on the Waffle Flower blog.
