Sending Smiles My Sweet Friend

Edited on 7/9/2021

I'm excited that this card was chosen as a Top 4 Picks by Krafty Chicks Challenge and Top 3 by Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge. Thanks, DTs.  

Hi Artsy Friends,

With the Pandemic around, our Social Distance guidelines include minimizing social gathering. As such I’ve been staying home during the weekends. Today I decided to practice some embossing folder techniques. This does cheer myself up and send myself smiles.  

Hope this card is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by.

Card Details

1. Embossing Folder and sentiment die are by Simon Says Stamp. Tiny sentiment stamp is by Altenew. Background crosshatch stamp is by Stampin’ Up.

2. I applied 3 techniques in total with this card. Can you tell? 

I’d like to enter my card to the following challenges.

Challenges to Enter

My favorite technique is to play with embossing folders by inking the raised portion of one side of the folder, stamping a background stamp with a deeper color on the same side of the folder, placing a card stock, then running through a die cut machine. Then sponge a complimentary color on the raised portions of the card panel, which are the flowers in my card above.
