Framed Florets Dry Embossing with Ink Card

Friends, today I'm starting a 3-day dry embossing series featuring the fabulous Framed Florets Bundle. Ce produit est également disponible en français. I particularly love the dies, as they give a card its overall shape with very little work on our part. I definitely recommend them!

For my first card, I used an embossing folder with ink to create a distressed look. This was a new technique for me and I really liked the final product: 

To make this card, I started by using the smallest oval die from Framed Florets Dies to cut ovals from Blushing Bride and Basic White Cardstock. I used the exterior Blushing Bride oval and the interior Basic White oval in the card. With Polished Pink ink, I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets Stamp Set onto the Basic White oval. (I'll include a clickable photo supply list at the end of this post.)

To create the distressed look on the top panel of the card, I first opened my Soft Succulent Ink Pad and Birthday embossing folder from Let’s Celebrate Embossing Folders. I applied the ink pad directly to the inside of the embossing folder, on the side that has the Stampin’ Up!® symbol. I tapped the ink pad repeatedly until the folder was thoroughly coated. (I found that being generous with ink worked best with this technique.) 


Being careful not to move the paper and smudge the ink, I placed a 5 1/2” x 2 3/4” strip of Blushing Bride Cardstock on the inked folder. Then I carefully closed the folder without moving the paper, and ran it through my Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Tip: When removing paper from folder, be prepared for the folder to be very inky - so beware! I then trimmed the paper to 1 3/4” x 5”. (I used a larger piece than was needed, so that I could trim to select the part of the image I liked best.)


I flipped over the embossed paper and a 2” x 5” strip of Fitting Florets DSP. (This paper is unfortunately no longer available - but you could use another DSP of your choice, perhaps another floral.) Then I connected them on the back with household tape to create a panel. I adhered the taped panel to a 4” x 5 1/4” piece of Evening Evergreen Cardstock using Stampin' Seal. Then I attached a 1/2” x 5” strip of DSP to hide the seam on the taped panel. I adhered the taped panel to a 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” Basic White Thick card base.


I attached the exterior Blushing Bride oval and interior white oval to each other by flipping them over and applying household tape. Then I adhered the attached ovals to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally, I added a bow from a coordinating Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon, using a Mini Glue Dot.
