In the new Memory Box Valentine's Release, there is a gorgeous Embossing Folder called Heart Bouquet. This is a 3-D Embossing Folder and it is so beautiful that I confess I had a hard time putting anything over it to create a card. There are so many ways to use embossing folders, but I wanted something that would enhance it, rather than cover it up.
To start, I misted the back of a 4.25 x 5-inch Panel of Sweet Blush Cardstock with plain water on the back side. I use a bottle that sprays a very fine mist. This allows the paper to stretch and give a little bit and gives the crispest impression.
Next, I die cut the outline of the Scribble Rose Trio from Gold Foiled Cardstock and the solid images from Pale Peony Cardstock. I attached the outline to the back piece with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I have a ScraPerfect fine line tip for this purpose.
I die cut the Love Airy Script from Gold Foil as well and laid it across my heart while adding the roses to the lower-left area. This card was super simple to make! I can't wait to have time to play with this folder more and I have a specific technique in mind to try with it. I'm traveling for the first few weeks of January so it will be a few weeks before I know if my technique worked or not. How's that for a little teaser? I hope you won't mind waiting too much and will look forward to my next post! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I really appreciate it when you take the time to spend with me here.
