Which occassion?

Yes Lynda, I am having an absolute ball with my Big Shot! 🙂

And here is the next card which uses an embossing folder through the big shot to create a beautiful background.  I haven’t added a greeting to this card because I wanted you to see how it could easily be used for many occasions, weddings, anniversary, birthday, mother’s day, sympathy, a get well or thinking of you card. 

The rose on this card is a piece of Whisper White textured cardstock, which I have stamped onto with the rose from Fifth Avenue Floral in black Stazon ink.  I have then used blender pens with a touch of Regal Rose ink to give the shading within the rose, but not too much ink otherwise it will destroy the cardstock.  I have then popped the rose up using some dimensionals.

I was also lucky enough to receive some of the gorgeous coloured rhinestone brads in the mail yesterday, from a special lady, Amanda Perryman, who has been my “Secret Sister” over the past three months.  So I have used one of the brads in the centre of the filigree flower, just to give it that finishing touch.

Stamp Set: Fifth Avenue Floral

Cardstock: Whisper White, Regal Rose.

Inks: Black Stazon, Regal Rose.

Accessories: Big Shot with Embossing Folder, Blender Pen, Paper snips, dimensionals, 2.5cm Double stitched Grosgrain ribbon in Rose Red, Filigree Designer brads, Circle Fire Rhinestone Brads.

I hope you like this one. Using the embossing folders makes it just so easy to create quick but beautiful cards.   So let me know if you would like to come to a class using the big shot to make the embossed backgrounds.

Til next time,
