Forever Lovely Two Ways

April 12, 2019

While I had this stamp set out I created one card and then decided that it could be stepped up just a little.  So here is what I did.  I stamped the floral image from the Forever Lovely stamp set across Whisper White card using Lovely Lipstick ink.  I stamped the leaf image around the flowers using Soft Sea Foam ink.  Photopolymer stamps make it so easy to do this because you can see through the stamp to get the placement right.   Once I had the images stamped, I used the edgelit die from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies to cut off the card. I stamped the greeting from the Forever Lovely stamp set onto the bottom right hand corner using Lovely Lipstick ink.  I wrapped the card with the Lovely Lipstick ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack and tied a knot.  I attached the Whisper White card to Soft Sea Foam card and then scored and folded Lovely Lipstick card.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the single flower from the Forever Lovely stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using Lovely Lipstick ink. I stamped the single leaf image multiple times around the flower using Soft Sea Foam ink.  I really liked the idea of this card but when I had finished it I thought it was just lacking a little something.  At first I wasn’t sure what but then I decided to try a very subtle difference with the next version.

So I embossed the Soft Sea Foam card using the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder and boy what a difference it made (I hope you liked my play on words!).  The only other change I made was to stamp the single flower on the inside of the card at the centre top of Whisper White card using Lovely Lipstick ink and I only added two leaves on each side using Soft Sea Foam ink.

I know it doesn’t sound like a big deal to emboss using the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder, but it really did make a huge difference to the look of the card.  Try it yourself and see what you think.

Anyway hopefully you can see the difference yourself.

Bye for now,
