CARDS DETAILS

I started working on my cards by stamping the sentiments on Simon’s Sea Glass cardstock. I stamped them in Versafine Onyx Black ink using a MISTI. The sentiments come from various sets – Greetings Mix 2, Spring Bouquets, and Greetings Mix 1.

Here’s a closer look at these cards:

featuring the Roseville Bouquet embossing folder

Next, I embossed each panel using new 3D embossing folders – Roseville Bouquet, Wildflower Field, and Leaf Bundle (there’s also a 4th embossing folder, Vine Canopy, I used it for slightly different cards HERE). Next, I covered the stamped part with clear embossing powder and heat set. The stamping was still wet (I used pigment ink and it takes longer to dry), so I was able to emboss it.

I trimmed the panels down slightly and foam mounted onto A2 white card bases. Next, to help the designs pop I gently rubber watermark ink over the raised areas (this gives a slightly darker color to the embossing), and white pigment ink (this lightens the embossing). Finally, I added some sequins from my stash.
