Aloha friends! Sorry for the delay, but the time got away from me!! May is a chaotic month for my household with family from out of town visiting and my kids celebrating all kinds of end of year events. There’s also wedding season coming up which is what inspired my card today…
I love background stamps and have a lot of older Hero Arts ones that I play with. This one is called Hero Arts Large Flower Background, but I also like the one that’s currently in the store called Hero Arts Flowers for Coloring. I think any background stamp would work nicely for this effect.
I started with Versamark ink and stamped on my card front. I used Lawn Fawn Rose Gold embossing powder because it is the wedding couple’s wedding color, but only applied to part of the background inking to create a tone on tone effect that moves into a fun colored embossing look. I didn’t want the whole panel embossed for a different…not quite so bold look. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Congrats Stamp and Cut die cut on glitter paper and then embossed on strips of the same colored cardstock of the card front.
I think the look gives it some elegance, but not too flashy for the groom to enjoy as well…haha!
That’s it for me! Wishing you all a great week ahead and MAHALO for stopping by!
