Easter Club Card

Hi Stamping Friends!

This is a card we made at my hostess club last Sunday afternoon:

I saw this technique on a card in the gallery at my favorite online Stampin' Up! hangout, STAMPIN' ADDICTS.  If you love SU! products and ideas, you should really go check out their gallery.  They have some fabulous stuff in there!  And while you're there, why don't you upload a few photos yourself, we love to see everyone's creations!

Sorry about the sidetrack!  Now back to the cars.  The card base is Elegant Eggplant layered with Whisper White.  The "DSP" is a piece of Whisper WHite that was embossed with the Finail Press Impressions Folder.  Then we flipped it to the back side and using Elegant Eggplant ink on the brayer, we brayered over the embossing.  I love how it really "pops" the pattern of the impression by leaving the white space!  The flower image is from Fifth Avenue Floral, which is 20% off during the month of April!!  We heat embossed it using black craft ink and black embossing powder.  The stamens were colored with the Summer Sun marker.  The butterfly comes from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  The sentiment comes from the All Holidays set.


Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a very blessed Easter!
Happy Stamping!

What a neat idea, brayering the de-bossed side! I gotta go try that now. :D
