embroidered blooms & more framed out #11
December 13, 2012
Welcome to day 4 of the Papertrey Ink December release countdown. Today is the first of 2 group post days and we have created projects to share using the new Embroidered Blooms set. I have a card to share that uses my new Framed Out #11 too.
All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on December 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.
I played around with layered embossing with the embroidered elements in the set - I am thinking this might need to be a Make it Monday video soon!
I created the background of the card with white and clear embossing on this anniversary card. I stamped and embossing the "outsides" of the images first and embossed them in white, I worked next on the areas embossed with the clear, and then added the flower centers that are embossed in white.
I really love the tapestry look that resulted combining the embroidered images with the embossing.
I die cut and opening in my background piece with a larger Mat Stack 6 die and then added the sentiment on the smaller Mat Stack die cut from kraft cardstock. The "happy" part of the sentiment is embossed in white and then I stamped "anniversary" in True Black ink underneath it.
I am very much in love with how this card turned out! Instead of alternating white and clear embossing, I did everything in white on the kraft cardstock - so pretty!
I die cut a heart from my piece of embossed cardstock and used it as the focal point of the card paired with the Postmarks heart that is cut with the Framed Out #11 die. Pairing these elements with the Ribbons and Bows set stamped in Fine Linen was perfect.
The "I adore you" sentiment is from Tag-its #11 and is stamped on one of the little flags from my new Countdown Details die.
Here's one final card with Framed Out #11 along with another die cut heart embossed in white with Embroidered Blooms. This card as a little bit more fancy and frilly than some of the other cards that I have shared so far with the Framed Out #11 set. The set's versatility is endless with the styles of cards that you might want to create!
Go to Nichole's blog to link up to the whole design team's projects that are created with the Embroidered Blooms set. Maile, Melissa, Lizzie, and Lexi will also have peeks to share on their blogs with their new sets.
There's another group post tomorrow and I will have something more to share with Framed Out #11. See you then!
