Do you love the look of embossing? Heat embossing is one of my favorite techniques. And I love to experiment with heat embossed images on various patterns of designer series paper. I happened to be playing around with some different patterned paper when I found a variety of black polka dot paper I had on hand.
Black and white always look so elegant together so I decided to emboss some beautiful white flowers all over it. Turned out kinda cool, hey?
This card is very simple to re-create. You just need some black patterned paper (the smaller the pattern the better). Stampin’ Up! has a wonderful selection of designer paper…you can browse the selections at http://bit.ly/W3OKoz. Cut a piece of whisper white cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of the black designer series paper (DSP). Find your favorite large flower stamp set, or you can use the new Flower Patch set as I did…ink up your flower images with versa mark and stamp them randomly over the DSP. Sprinkle white embossing powder over the versa mark and tap off the excess. I highly recommend rubbing down the DSP with an embossing buddy so that you do not end up with white embossing powder where you don’t want it on the black DSP. Heat set the flower images and then embellish to your liking! I embellished the card with some vintage faceted buttons, chevron ribbon, a bitty butterfly (cut from the DSP) and a cute little tag. Super fun! You can make it as simple or intricate as you like!
