Hello and thank you for visiting my blog today.
I did the heat embossed panel on this card several weeks ago and even mounted it onto a different card. Unfortunately, the more I looked at it, the more I disliked it, so I carefully removed the panel and mounted it onto this card, using a much simpler style. I like it so much better this way.
The card base was made the usual way using a piece of A4 Whisper White cardstock cut in half and scored in half. I cut a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock to 3 5/8” x 5 3/8” then using the Floral Essence stamp set with a Versamark Ink pad, randomly stamped the flower as shown. Stampin’ Silver Emboss Powder was used to cover the stamping and heat set. I used the Braided Border Punch to create a piece long enough for the top and bottom of the panel horizontally and trimmed this in half. The strips were attached to the back of the panel and was then attached to the card base. I didn’t want the border strips to be flat so gently pulled them forward for more dimension and a lace effect. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, which was again stamped in Versamark and heat set after being covered in the same embossing powder. I cut this into a small rectangle and attached it to the card.
