Embedded Embossing- Birthday Wishes


Hi Stampers! 

I created this card for a special friend of mine using the CCMC170Sketch at Create with Connie and Mary and the colors from this week’s HSSCT87Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  Both sites have wonderful inspiration- if you have a moment, check them out! 


I decided to use the Emboss Resist and Embedded Embossing for this card (not sure if Embedded Embossing is the correct name but it seems to describe the technique :-))

To create this card:

Use the Embossing Buddy® to de-static a piece of Pumpkin Pie Designer Series Paper and stamp the Sweet Floral background stamp with Versamark®ink.  Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.  Once the image has cooled, use Sponge Daubers to apply Cherry Cobbler and Night of Navy Classic Ink over the image using circular motions to push the ink into the detail of the embossing.  Gently wipe the excess ink off with a damp paper towel and carefully cut around the image.

Adhere the image to Night of Navy cardstock, trim and use the Big Shot™ with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss.  Mount onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock and add the 5/8” Night of Navy Satin Ribbon and mount the entire panel onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock.

Create the rolled flowers from Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie using the 1 3/8”  and 1 ½” Circle Punches (cut a spiral and roll up- quick and easy) and insert a pearl into the center of each flower.

Stamp the sentiment onto Pumpkin Pie, punch out with the Large Oval Punch and layer with two Large Oval pieces of Cherry Cobbler.

Add the sentiment and flowers to the card and finish off with the 5/8” Night of Navy Satin bow.


Modified version:  Add the Whisper White carstock layer- punched border at the bottom (punched with the Eylet Border Punch and crimped with the Crimper). 




So which one do you like better?  With the white layer at the bottom or without ( am leaning to the one with the white..)?


Stamp Sets: Sweet Floral (background), Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Versamark®, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy
Accessories: Big Shot™, Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Embossing Buddy® , Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder , Heat Tool, 5/8” Night of Navy Satin Ribbon, Large Oval Punch, 1/38” and 1 ½’ Circle Punches,  Sponge Daubers, Pearls

Thanks again for stopping by! I hope you like this card- I had a great time creating it!   Have a wonderful Sunday and God Bless!

Wow is all I can say! Very bold but it works so well with this bold color combo! Way over the top and I love it. I do think I like the one with the white better, it just pops! Thanks for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
