I wanted to use the Altenew Spring Shower Cover Die, but I didn’t want to take the time to do paper piecing. This time I decided to dry emboss the die as a background to Altenew’s Remember This, another beautiful layering flower stamp. It’s hard to see in the picture, but it makes a lovely background to this card.
The largest My Favorite Things Rectangle STAX was used to cut Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock. Next the Altenew Spring Shower Cover Die was placed on the rectangle and run through the Big Shot a second time on the embossing tab using the Spellbinder tan embossing pad. I wanted a deep impression and so a shim was used to create greater depth with the embossing.
I wanted to the embossed background to show as much as possible and so I decided to only use one flower and bud from the Remember This stamp set. They were stamped with the Altenew Inks listed below. I forgot that I had the matching dies, and so I fussy cut around the images.
The sentiment is from Mama Elephant’s Make a Wish and was stamped on The Paper Company Vellum with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Silver Embossing Powder. The vellum was wrapped around the embossed rectangle and adhered to the back using Scotch Tape. Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8″ smaller than the embossed rectangle and adhered to the back. The bud and leaves were adhered to the vellum and embossed rectangle and the flower was adhered using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.
A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image rectangle was adhered using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. Wink of Stella was added to the flowers and the card and a clean, simple, but beautiful card was done.
