Greetings friends, It’s Teri with TerisMailbox sharing a gorgeous embossed floral card today using Stardream Metallic Cardstock from CutCardStock.
Check put the subtle shine you get with the Stardream Cardstock! Add a little Glitter Diecut and you are ready!
Emboss the Card Panel
Many of the craft companies are promoting Embossing Folders. Altenew has many of my favorite large floral embossing folders. I chose the Ranunculus Bouquet 3D folder for its size and ability to provide a beautiful focal point for the card.
Trim a piece of Stardream Coral Cardstock to 6 x 6 inches. Center in the embossing folder and run through your die cutting machine.
Check out the details and depth you can achieve using this embossing folder!
Color the Floral Image
Using the corner of small ink cubes, color the flowers, leaves and berries in your color choices. If you accidently color the background, the ink can be removed by rubbing gently with a Mono sand eraser.
Create the Sentiment
This is a great card for either a Birthday or a Wedding. Altenew’s Celebrate Fancy Die is perfect for this using Silver Glitter Cardstock. Cut one from the silver cardstock and a second from Rose Quartz Stardream Metallic Cardstock. Glue them together offset slightly to show a little of the Rose Quartz Cardstock.
Assemble the Card
Cut a Card base using Cougar 110 White Cardstock. This is my favorite cardstock for the base. I always create my card bases by cutting in two and scoring them! I often will sit down and do multiples at once and store them ready to go!
Cut a Rose Quartz panel 4.25 by 5.5 inches. Attach the Rose Quartz panel to the front of the A2 card base.
Cut the inked and embossed floral image to 3.75 x 5 inches centering the floral bloom where you want to have it. Attach to the card base.
Add liquid glue to the bottom of the Celebrate Sentiment and position as you like.
I am sure you have a stash of embellishment bling! Now is the time to bring that out! Add a few bling pieces to complete the card!
