Floral Background Embossed Mom Card (#10/52) {03.10.2017}

Okay, so today's card is something that I have wanted to try, and it is really easy, so I don't know why I waited so long to give this a try! I stamped out a large background stamp. (I think it is a Hero Arts background stamp, but I am not sure.) I stamped my card panel, and covered it with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Skylight embossing powder, and heat set it. I die cut the card panel with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Rectangles die. That is pretty much it! Let's check it out.

The above photo doesn't quite do it justice ... the fully embossed background was so pretty in real life, and the image of the flowers really stood out, yet was subtle. Here is a close up photo of the main flower - I think of it as a peony, but not really sure what it is.

I also did up the inside, like I like to do. I stamped out the "just wanted to say" sentiment from Lawn Fawn in black ink (gack! can't remember which stamp set!), then covered it with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Clear Detail embossing power and heat set it. I also stamped out an Alt E New's Halftone Hello stamp set's "hello" sentiment in a light colored ink, then stamped again over it using a stamp position, with Versamark Ink. Then, I sprinkled on Sparkle N Sprinkle's Sparkle embossing powder and heat set it too. This really sparkled, and was really fun. Here is what the inside looked like.

Even though this card is simple and easy to reproduce or mass produce, I really like it and love the colors. I love that is stylish yet simple. My kind of card! Mom really likes blue, that is her favorite color, so I hope she really likes it too.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
