Freshly Made Sketch #350

August 21, 2018

Today’s card uses this week’s sketch challenge at Freshly Made, for which, unfortunately, I missed the deadline.   I find it a great source of inspiration if I am struggling to create to browse the many challenges on the net and find one that suits my purpose.  For today’s card, I embossed Whisper White card using the Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder.  These folders give a wonderful deep and “dynamic” impression but you do need to learn how to use them properly.  This video by Donna from the Training Team at Stampin’ Up! gives some great tips for using these folders.

Great tips aren’t they? If you haven’t tried spritzing with water, then you really must.  The difference is quite amazing.  Anyway, once I had embossed the folder I attached the Whisper White card to scored and folded Calypso Coral card.  I attached a piece of the Garden Impressions Designer Series paper across the embossed card.  I stamped the flower from the Healing Hugs stamp set onto Whisper White card using Calypso Coral ink and cut it out.  I stamped two sets of the leaves from the Healing Hugs stamp set onto Whisper White card using Soft Sea Foam ink and cut them out.  I attached the leaves to the back of the flower before attaching the whole piece to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting from the Hand Delivered stamp set onto Soft Sea Foam card using Shaded Spruce ink and punched it out using the Classic Label Punch The greeting is attached over the flower using mini dimensionals under the right hand edge.

To decorate the inside of the card, I embossed a narrow strip of Whisper White card using the Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder.  (You can probably see the difference in this piece to the card front, because I forgot to use my spritzer!  I decided to use this piece anyway so you could see that it is worth taking the time to spritz with water before using these types of Embossing Folders.)  I attached a narrow strip of Shaded Spruce card behind the embossed card, before attaching to Whisper White card.

I had fun creating this card, thanks Freshly Made for the inspiration.

Bye for now,

Kris
