Technique Thursday Stampin Up Painted Petals Embossed Card

Thursdays posts will be somewhere I will be showcasing a technique or two.  From some of the new trendy ones that are popping up in the crafting world, to some of the good old favourites.  For todays post I have gone with embossing with a Textures Impressions Folder.  I always think they look so pretty so I buy them then never use them so my posts will encourage me to think out of the box and use some of the lovely things I buy but never get round to using.

For todays card base I used Soft Sky A4 Cardstock cut at 5 7/8 inches and scored at 4 1/8 inches.  I then cut a piece of the adorable Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper to 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches and adhered this to my card base with snail adhesive.  I then took a piece of Blushing Bride A4 Cardstock and cut it to 5 5/8 inches x 1 1/4 inches, I then ran this through my BigShot with the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Folder.  I took a small piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 2 inches by 1 1/2 inches and stamped the gorgeous sentiment from the Painted Petals Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink, I then adhered this to my card front and popped my embossed piece over it.  I finished the edge of the two pieces off with a piece of Stitched Satin Ribbon in Blackberry Bliss.  The last final touch to my card front was a few Candy dots from the brights collection.

For the inside I simply popped in a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the small stem image in Wild Wasabi Classic Ink and topped it with the coordinating flower image in Blackberry Bliss.
