So, this started out as me trying to figure out the answer to a question for my downline, Liz, about how to get rich color on the top of the flowers from the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. I thought I knew what to tell her, but I wanted to try it out first so I could make sure I told her the right technique (since there are quite a few ways to color with your embossing folder). Plus it was a great excuse for me to get back into creating videos too! Yay!
Anyway, I finally figured it out and then thought I ought to do something with the finished colored and embossed paper, so this is what I came up with:
Isn’t he cute? I finally busted out my Tag It stamp set and used the coordinating Chalk Talk framelits to create the center tag. Plus I accented it with my beloved Stitched Satin Ribbon in Gumball Green. It makes it so happy, no?
Want to know how easy it is to color the flowers on this embossing folder?
Check out this quick video I made to show you how I did it. (if you are reading this in email, click here to view the video on my blog)
Thank you, Liz!!
Now that I have this technique figured out, you can be sure I’m going to use it a lot. It is so fast and I love the look.
I’m also thinking of including this card in my upcoming Holiday Card stamp-a-stacks. What do you think? Would you want to make this card?
And check back tomorrow for another card idea using this same folder and technique. See you then!
