Embossed Flowers Cards

One of my new year’s resolutions was to send out a lot more handmade cards to my friends and family.  To create a stack of cards can sometimes be a long process but if you plan ahead, you can really make your creative time count!  For these cards, I used Nuvo Gold Enchantment Glitter embossing powder to create some flowers that will go with just about any colors and patterns of paper.

Supplies Used:

To begin, cut the kraft cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″ and score it at 5 1/2″.  Fold along the score line to create an A2 size card with the fold at the top of the card.  For this card, I used some 6×6 patterned paper.  So I cut two pieces that measures 3 x 4″ and adhered them into place onto the card front.  I set this aside to start creating the embellishments for the card.

Before stamping the flowers, use a powder tool on the white cardstock.  This reduces static so that the embossing powder sticks just where you want it.  Stamp the flowers and leaves onto white cardstock using embossing ink.  Sprinkle the gold embossing powder, tap off the excess and then heat.

 

I ended up stamping a whole page of these flowers and leaves so that I could cut them all out while I watched TV.

I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of kraft cardstock and used some Glacier White Fine detail embossing powder.  This powder is perfect for sentiments.

I used the Essentials Circle dies and die cut a circle from white cardstock.  Then using some 3d foam squares, I attached the flowers and leaves into place.  Plus I added the sentiments.  Here is a closer look.

The best part about using the gold embossing powder is that you could use these flowers with just about any colored patterned paper!  So cut out the extras you embossed and put them in a baggie to use for a later project!
