I had never ordered a card kit from any company before, so when I received Simon Says Stamp‘s June card kit I was so amazed at all the goodies it contained!  One of the most awesome items is this Tim Holtz Sizzix Botanical 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder!  (Now that’s a mouthful!!)  But just look at the deeply detailed embossed texture!!  The instructions advise dampening your card stock before running it through your embossing machine, but I didn’t do that and it came out beautifully!  This gorgeous Cornflower Blue card stock also came in the kit with a coordinating envelope.  I heat-embossed the floral spray from SSS’s Beautiful Flowers set in black onto Bristol Smooth card stock, then used my Zig markers to color it in.  I used a dark blue marker to fill in the background and spattered water droplets over it all when it was dry.

I trimmed the panel down to a strip which I mounted onto a layer of white card stock, then attached it with some foam tape to the beautiful embossed base card.  The final touch was to emboss the sentiment onto a scrap of white, add a little jewel and place that with a bit of foam tape to lift it up.  I just love the rich color and feel of this card!

I made this card next except that I used the other side of the embossed base card, so the design is recessed.  It’s a little more subtle look.  I colored the blossoms again with my Zig markers, using shades of red, orange and yellows, colored the background with blue again and spattered drops of water!  A strip of black behind the flowers makes it stand out against the white base card.

To finish this card, I heat-embossed in black one of the sentiments from Altenew’s Label Love onto a scrap of white, and lifted it with a bit of foam tape.  I loved making these richly colored cards and I promise these won’t be the last ones you see with Beautiful Flowers!!  🙂

  1. Love this card, I have that embossing folder but have not used it yet. Beautiful coloring too. Wish I had a maid, gardener and cook so I could craft the rest of my life.
