Here is a card I created a while ago for a Way to Use it Challenge. We were to use embossing on our card. I already had the center piece colored and cut so I first dry embossed with one of Stampin’ Up!’s new Embossing Folder (Mary Brown was here for a visit and brought it over to play with). Then the raised part of the strip was covered with Versamark and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.

The main image is from Flourishes Calendar Set #2. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers (B91, R24, R27, YG03, YG25, YR16, YR18). The image was cut with Label 9 Nestabilities. With the die still over the cardstock, the image was airbrushedwith Copic Marker B000.


The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Early Espresso cardstock folded in half. 3 3/4″ wide Webster Pages patterned paper was stitched to a 3 15/16″ x 5 3/16″ piece of Whisper White paper. Espresso Satin ribbon was tied around the layers horizontally. The 2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Riding Hood Red paper was stitched with brown thread and adhered over the ribbon with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Flourishes Tag Lines. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut out with Petite Oval Nestabilities and airbrushed with Copic Marker YR16.  Three Pearl Kaisercraft Pearls on the top right finish off the card front.


The inside of the card is very basic. A small strip of Riding Hood Red cardstock was punched with Martha Stewart Deco Shell Border punch and a strip of Webster Pages patterned paper was stitched to it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
