Floral Archway

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I'm not much for clubs as I tend to be pretty specific with my wants, but
the 3D Embossing Club at Spellbinders drew me in.

This was the January folder.

I love that these embossing folders are large enough for a A7 or a slimline card.

This is for my sister-in-law and it was so quick and easy.

I embossed on blue cardstock by rubbing a damp baby wipe on the inside of the
folder before embossing.  I got such a wonderful deep impression.

A little white pigment ink on the raised images added some depth and
some Distress Foundry Wax in the centers was all the coloring needed.

It seemed a perfect spot for this Dreamy Butterfly to land.

I hope she likes her card and I can't wait to play with the 
February embossing folder.

Card Recipe
Ink:   Whisper White
Paper:   Blue Breeze (MFT), Neenah Solar White
Other:  Floral Archway 3D EF (Spl), Gilded Distress Foundry Wax (TH), Dreamy Butterfly (MB)

I love the touch of white over the e/f. That is a beautiful butterfly too. Embossing folders have really come in to their own and are so great to work with. I'd better check this club out!

Lucky SIL, this is so gorgeous. Love the blues and the pop of white with that butterfly.

You always achieve such remarkable impressions, Bonnie! I love that you swiped the white ink over the raised parts and don't have it all over the background of the design. This is GORGEOUS!

Brenda said...

This is a gorgeous card Bonnie and a beautiful 3D embossing folder. Love the color and I love the embossing highlighted with the white ink. The wax on the centers of the flowers looks amazing. Loving that butterfly too! I'm not into clubs either, but got sucked in myself to build some glimmer plates in my foiling library. I've been eyeing up the 3D folders they have been coming out with too. Thinking that I should have signed up for that. LOL I am really loving this one, I'm sure your SIL will love her card! Hugs, Brenda

This is an elegant and beautiful card, Bonnie! The deep impression of the flowers is amazing! Adding the white pigment ink to the raised images is a great idea to enhance the depth, and you placed the cute white butterfly in the perfect spot. Your sister-in-law is going to love the card!

So soft and pretty, Bonnie. I need to try this technique on some of the folders I have.

Marcia Hill said...

Spellbinders really has had some gorgeous embossing folders lately, so I can see why you were drawn to the club Bonnie! Your card turned out absolutely BEAUTIFUL with just the touch of white and gold added to the blue, and of course that lovely butterfly finished off the card just beautifully! Lovely, lovely card my friend!! Hugs. :0)

HilaryJane said...

It is beautiful, there are some really stunning embossing folders out there at the moment and I think Spellbinders have some of the best. Love the contrast from the white butterfly xx

Trina P. said...

Lucky you! It was sold out by the time I tried to sign up. Your card is beautiful and your SIL will love it.

Leslie Miller said...

Gorgeous with a capitol GORGEOUS! I've been looking at that club and trying to decide. My one concern is that I'd amass too huge a collection and run myself out of house and home. Now you've got me looking at it again, all thanks to this most lovely card.

Sandy said...

I am trying to do some catch up and so happy I did not miss this post. So pretty - very soft. From the color blue to the embossing work, this butterfly was in for a soft landing!

WOW! This folder is amazing. The flowers are exceptionally pretty. White wipes increased the 3D effect, and gold wax beautifully marked the flower centers.
