CARD DETAILS

To create this card I dry embossed Faceted Stripes stencil on Smoke Gray cardstock. It’s very easy to create an embossed background using a stencil and results are always beautiful. All you need for this is a die cutting machine and rubber embossing mat.

Next, I stamped two monstera leaves from the Tropical Leaves stamp set in the following colors of ink: Key Lime, Evergreen, Black. The black doesn’t actually look like black here, it looks more like deep dark green, but that layer was in fact stamped in black. The panel was foam mounted onto a background. I antique gold embossed “Thank You” and “Grateful For You”, cut them out and foam mounted on the card.

The card was decorated with Sunken Treasure and Girl’s Best Friend sequins.

    1. Thanks for showing us how you can use a stencil and dry-embossing as a background! I’m always looking for way to make masculine cards and seeing ideas in pictures really inspires me!

    1. How have I never seen using a stencil to dry emboss before? Or maybe I did and I blocked it from my mind? Great cards!

    1. Lovely cards, Yana! Thank you for showing us more ways to use the great stencils from the new release!

    1. You are so talented and creative – love how you come up with different ways to use products
