I've been playing with the new punch, dies and embossing folders and I predict they're going to be a big hit! By combining the Adorning Accents Edgelits die and the Adorning Accents Embossing Folders, you can create some beautiful combinations and effects!
1) Fold a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Lucky Limeade CS in half to form your card base.
2) Cut a 3" x 5-1/4" piece of DSP and die cut one long edge using the Adorning Accents Edgelits die. Adhere onto top portion of card front.
3) Place the Adorning Accents Embossing Folder on your card front aligning it to be slightly below the die cut edge of DSP. You want the Stampin' Up! logo to be on the outside of your card so that your design will be embossed, not debossed. Run through Big Shot.
4) Using Basic Gray ink, stamp "Dream" from the Loving Thoughts stamp set as shown.
5) Using VersaMark ink and ornamental design flower from the Mixed Bunch stamp set, stamp image onto Poppy Parade CS and punch out using the Blossom Punch. Curl petals as shown. (Curl them around a small paint brush handle if you have one.)
6) Use the Blossom Punch to punch another flower from the DSP. Curl petals as shown and adhere over stamped Poppy Parade flower, then adhere onto card as shown.
7) From Poppy Parade CS, punch the largest flower using the Boho Blossoms Punch and a circle using the 3/4" Circle Punch. Adhere to center of punched flower as shown.
9) Cover dried Dazzling Details with a thick layer of Crystal Effects. Allow to dry. Adding the Crystal Effects really adds a great effect – the glitter is even more sparkly!
You could easily make a variety of this card design by simply using different DSP patterns and/or CS colors.
