I hope your week has got off to a good start.
Embossing folders are something that I rarely use and I am making an effort to use them more in my crafting as I love the look they give to whatever you're making.
This card features the Petal Bursthttps://www2.stampinup.com/ECWeb/product/141493/petal-burst-textured-impressions-embossing-folder folder that I have run the front of the card base through the Big Shot. I have chosen to use Pacific Point from the Brights collection for this one.
I have added some DSP, a monochrome piece from the Spring/Summer Petal Passion collection, and a contrasting piece from the Whole Lot of Lovely range that is available in the annual catalogue. I usually try and coordinate my colours but I love how much the Crushed Curry colour stands out against the blue!
The ribbon is actually Dapper Denim in colour and has been tied around the card front with a bow.
I have torn a piece of velum and attached using strategically placed Stampin' Dimensionals (so they can't be seen through the Velum).
I have stamped the small flower from the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set and coloured in using the light and dark Pumpkin Pie, and the light and dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends. The flower has been glued onto the piece of velum.
The sentiment comes from the Lovely Inside and Out Stamp Set, and 'hugs' is has been cut using the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies.
