Embossing with Dies Floral Card with Video

posted in: Blog, janet 2

Hello, Janet here with a easy card to make using your dies to emboss.  I used the beautiful Pretty Petals stamp and dies by Concord and 9th.  All the products I used to make this card are listed at the bottom. I have also created a video showing the process.  You can see the video tutorial HERE.Floral-Card


I stamped the background image with Tiara ink in the center of my card panel first, then filled in around the edges with the same stamp to create a background.  For the layering stamp I used Tiki Torch ink.  To fill in all the white space I stamped the dot cluster image with Sky Light ink.


To add the embossed detail I used my Big Shot.  I used it on Tab 1, my bottom cutting plate, a tan embossing mat, my card and die, and my top cutting plate.  I wanted to add this detail to all the floral images.  It took a bit of time to figure out how to place my card and die so it would go through the die cutting machine.


To add the sentiment I die cut the Hello three times from black card and layered them together.  I embossed From All Of Us in white on black card and added this as a small strip below the hello.  I finished the card with some sequins from a 28 Lilac Lane tin and a small dot of Nuvo Crystal Glaze in the middle of each sequin.


Let me know what you think of this card – either in the comments here on the blog or over at YouTube. The tutorial video is available to watch HERE.
