Good day to you. I hope you are doing well. Last evening, I needed to create a quick birthday card. I recently acquired the Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with Stamp - Flourish Set and wanted to use it for the first time after being inspired by a Catherine Pooler video (love her videos!). Using y Misti, I took out the foam and inserted the background stamp. For the first card, I used Ranger Watercolor cardstock. I used various Distress Ink colors randomly on the stamp and lightly sprayed the stamp with water and pressed it into the watercolor paper. I thought the results were beautiful.
I repeated the process using regular Darice 110 lb Note paper. This was beautiful also. I embossed both pieces using the included embossing folder through my Sizzix Big Shot. I trimmed a piece of vellum and stamped it using the Happy Birthday script stamp from Lawn Fawn with Versamark and then applied SSS White ultrafine Embossing Powder. For the other card, I then cut out a Happy Birthday using the Elizabeth Craft Die set and black glitter paper. I used a Distress Inkpad and colored the edges of the card stock and mounted the completed embossed piece. I finished off with a couple strands of embroidery thread. I hope you like the finished pieces. I tried to keep the cards simple due to all the colors of the background.
Have a great day.
