Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend! As I always seem to say, things have been busy. The little man started with a new teacher on Monday because their class sizes were so big. They added another teacher and split the students evenly. I am glad. He loves his new teacher. Whew. Cub Scouts and swimming started. I am now singing in the choir (and soon playing worship team) at church, and all the usual running around life throws our way. You know what? Life is good. :)
The look of negative space is so popular. I love it. Using Viola Sprouts, a die template from Simon Says Stamp, I die a piece of cardstock. (I set the flowers aside for another project.)
Then I thought it would be fun to make a faux letter press pattern to place behind my open flowers. To create it, I simply inked up the raised edges of an embossing folder, placed cardstock inside the folder, and ran it through my manual die cutting machine. I adhered the faux letterpressed cardstock behind the open flowers with Crafty Foam Tape. The whole panel was attached to a card base.
And it looks like I need to film a video tutorial on this super fun technique! Soon. Its going on my list!
thanks for stopping by!
