Choose Happiness Embossed Card


Hi Friends! Tina here with another card for my "Passport Pals" guest post with Frenchie.  Before I get into the project though I thought I'd share a photo from the recent Founder's Circle Retreat in St. George, Utah this past week of Frenchie and I:

One of the best things about Founder's Circle (besides being pampered and spoiled by Stampin' Up!) is the time we have to visit with our friends.  It's always so nice to see each other in person and I love that there are events like this that bring us all together.  Frenchie is so sweet (and funny!) and I'm blessed that our business brought us together - she's a friend I truly cherish.

So let's get back to today's project.  This was a fun card to make because I basically used one colour throughout, which was Pumpkin Pie, and a little reverse embossing.  Super easy.  Here's what I did:



First I stamped the flower image from "Choose Happiness" stamp set (#134195 wood/ #134198 clear) with Pumpkin Pie Ink (#126845) onto Whisper White Card Stock (#100730).  I then used a ruler and my Pumpkin Pie Marker (#105115) to draw a straight line between the flowers to create a border.


Next, I stamped the same flower image onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie Card Stock (#105117) with Versamark Ink (#102283), sprinkled some White Embossing Powder (#109132) over top and set with the Heat Tool (#129053).



I used my 2" Circle Punch (#133782) on the embossed card stock and added a layer of Crystal Effects (#101055) to add some glossy shine and dimension and set it aside to dry (it took a couple of hours because I used a thick layer of Crystal Effects).

The contrasting card stock is Cajun Craze (#119684) and I ran it, along with the Pumpkin Pie card stock, through the Big Shot (#113439) using the Argyle Embossing Folder (#127750).  I punched out a piece of Cajun Craze with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch and adhered my Crystal Effect image on top.  A little banner for the sentiment finished it off! 

 Measurements:
Whisper White Card Base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Pumpkin Pie Layer: 5 1/4" x 4"
Cajun Craze Layer: 4 3/4" x 3 1/4"
Whisper White Layer: 4 1/2" x 3"


I hope you enjoyed today's card! Pop on over to my blog today to see what Frenchie created for her "Passport Pals" project!

See you again in a couple of weeks - HAPPY STAMPING!
