Blooming Embossed Two Ways

Have I posted this card on the blog before?  Sorry if I have.  We are all battling the cold/flu my dear son brought home last week.   For some reason when my head is congested I can't think straight.  :)


I did a quick search and didn't find it.  :)  It's pretty enough to look at again if I did though, don't you think?  I made it for a sparkly challenge.   Of course, the sparkle doesn't show up in the picture.


First I stamped the Blooming with Kindness stamp using Elegant Eggplant ink onto Wisteria Wonder DSP.  Then I cut it out using the Labels Framelits.  While I had my Big Shot out I embossed the background piece with the Fancy Fan Em.Folder and the tag from Hearts A Flutter Framelits.


Next I covered my "blooming label" with Versamark Ink and then doused it with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  To really make it sparkle I heat set it with my heat tool.  It is so pretty in real life.  I wish I could capture that on film.

To finish it off I tied some Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon around the lower portion of my card.  Just looking at this card makes me feel better.  :)

Creative Blessings,
Heather North
