I did this card last week but didn't get a chance to show it to you. I used this technique that Joan shared with us for the Technique Lover's Challenge. Basically, you color your embossing folder before you emboss your design.
I used the colors from last week's color challenge, also at SCS. The colors were Blushing Bride, Certainly Celery and So Saffron with White or Vanilla. We could add a flower for dessert.
I used the new Flower Garden Embossing folder. You can find it on page 24 of the Summer Mini catalog. I used markers to color the debossed side of the folder and ran it through the BIG GUY. I touched it up a bit with the markers and a blender pen since the colors were so light that they didn't show up well. To do it again, I would use much brighter colors.
Ink: SU Markers (Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Certainly Celery)
Paper: Whisper White, Blushing Bride
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Lattice EF & Flower Garden EF, Ticket Corner Punch, White Taffeta Ribbon
This card is a little larger than normal. It measures 4 1/2" x 6 3/8" and fits in the large envelopes that Stampin' Up! used to sell. I wish they still sold them. I really like this size.
I've been busy making baby thank you notes for DD Baby Shower this weekend. I find that they're a welcome gift for the expectant mother. They're almost finished and I'm hoping to get a chance to stamp for fun tomorrow.
Thanks so much for stopping in to visit. I really appreciate all the comments I've received today.
