FLORAL WEDDING

The challenge theme this month at A Blog Named Hero is "embossing" and I wanted to make a wedding card in the bride's chosen colors (white, black and gold).


In order to have a a crisp black flower outline, I stamped the flowers and leaves with HA black dye ink several times and then clear embossed.  For sentiments or any outline I think this is best way to have a really crisp black line.  I do use my MISTI and stamp it twice so it stays wet long enough for embossing - but I have never had any trouble with this HA combo.  Masked the flowers with a Post-It so the leaves could look tucked under the flowers.  This piece was die cut with a HA rectangle die and popped up with thin fun foam on a white base.  Die cut the "happy" from some gold metallic paper and made a sentiment strip using gold embossing powder.  My flower is from the HA April 2016 kit.

There's plenty of time to enter your embossed creation at A Blog Named Hero and be eligible for a great prize.
