This is a project I featured over at the CutCardstock blog. Shimmery elegance is how I would describe the Curious Metallic Cardstock on sale this month over at CutCardstock. I was drawn to the lovely Blue Print shade and wanted to try a simple look with some white heat embossing to really bring out that vibrant blue.
When I create cards with little embellishment or plain stamping, I like to add another layer that doesn't compete, but adds texture and interest. I decided to use my favorite embossing folder along with a card base made with Cougar White Super Smooth cardstock.
I cut a panel of the Blue Print cardstock and used a stamp platform to ensure a perfect impression when I stamped my flowers using Versamark Ink.
I used a bright, opaque white embossing powder to heat emboss the flowers onto the panel. The Curious Metallic Cardstock heat embosses beautifully! I also added a small panel for my heat embossed sentiment and popped it up on the panel with some foam tape. I then added foam tape to the entire panel and added that to my white card base. I lined it up with the top left corner so some of the dry embossing of the card base could be seen.
Thanks so much for joining me. Supplies I used are linked below-- Have a great day!
