Embossed Flower Card

I made this card for two challenges this week. StampTV asked us to have heat embossing and colouring on our card. The Mod Squad Challenge Blog asked us to have a flower as our focal image.

For the Mod Squad Challenge if we use a stamp by Melanie Muenchinger we get an extra entry, so I chose the flower from the Square Pegs set. I stamped it with VersaMark ink all over a piece of Gina K layering weight white cardstock and embossed it with Recollections Snow embossing powder. I sponged VersaMagic Purple Hydrangea, Spring Pansy, and Pixie Dust chalk ink and ColorBox Yellow Ochre fluid chalk ink over the background.

On a smaller piece of white cardstock I stamped and embossed three more flowers, this time with Ebony embossing powder so that the focal image would stand out. I coloured in the flowers with Spectrum Noir markers PL2, PL3, PL4, CT2, CT4, PP2 and BP3. I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Blessings set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I layered the focal image with a piece of pink cardstock and the background with black using Tombow Mono Adhesive and put it onto a white Gina K base weight card base. I popped up the focal image with some foam squares and added the bow with a mini Glue Dot. The pink and black cardstock and the ribbon are from my stash.


  1. Very pretty card, love the background too. Thank you so much for participating this week at the Mod Squad Challenge

  2. That certainly fits both challenges and I just love the spring like colors you used too! Beautiful card design.


Thank you for your comments. I appreciate each one.
