Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Emboss http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
I am excited to share this jumbo peony with you today. I got my inspiration for making this card from Amy Sheffer at Stampers Dream. The sentiment could be changed to give a card like this to someone for almost any occasion.
After I cut a piece of white cardstock to 10X7 inches, it was folded to open on the side, making a 5X7 inch card. I then cut out a 5X7 inch panel of white cardstock to be embossed and adhered to the front of the card. I used an edge punch to make a looped edge and then set the panel aside until later. I used a VersaMark Embossing Ink pad to stamp the jumbo peony on white cardstock. This was sprinkled with black embossing powder and melted with a heat gun. The peony was colored with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. A scalloped medallion was punched out of dark mint cardstock. To get a circle I used a punch on white cardstock. The sentiment from another stamp set was inked with Versa Mark and black embossing powder was sprinkled on it, then melted with a heat gun. A piece of white lace was taken from my stash and daubed with Evergreen ink. I let this set for a while to dry. When the lace was dry, a line of tape runner was placed down the left side of the card and the lace was adhered. I made sure to leave lace hanging over on the top and bottom of the panel so it could be folded under the front panel and taped to the back. The front panel was then adhered to the card base. Everything else was adhered with a tape runner as well. Sequins and enamel dots were glued on to finish.
I wish you would give a big blossom such as this a try. While there were several steps to take, the making was pretty cut and dry. If you want to know anything specific about something that I left out, just leave me a comment and I will do my best to give you the information. Also, please leave a comment to tell me what you think. If you like this post, there is a LIKE bottom at the bottom of the posting.
