I changed my mind a few times with this card, I didn't know if I should heat emboss it in white and then fussy cut it or if I should just stamp it onto craft card stock, heat emboss it and cut the panel and then figure out how to lay it out. I opted for this choice, when I looked at this image I knew it was going to be difficult not to mess up the embossing with my scissors so I just left it alone, when I was done with this card, I really liked the way it looks.
This image is from Power Poppy's Spice it Up stamp set, I love this images, whether colored or not, they are beautiful. So I stamped it onto a piece of craft card stock with SU white craft ink, this ink pad is OLD!! but still juicy enough to make a great impression, then I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it.
I stamped the background panel with the Hardwood stamp from SU, I love the details on this image.
The lace trim is from my stash, it's very white so it fits the colors asked, the sentiment is from the same set, but I only wanted to use the top part, I wanted to mask it but it was messy with the white ink so, I just grab my scissors and cut it!!! and heat emboss it also in white.
The bottom part was used for the inside of my card.
I stamped the pretty frame from an old Flourishes set called "Country Charm Labels" and the other part of the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink.
The cute little mitten is from a Power Poppy set called Merry Littles which is my go to set to add something pretty to the inside.
This is the Merry Monday inspiration photo that inspired my card.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
