Embossed card set with Kaylee

Embossed card set with Kaylee

Welcome again!   Kaylee here today and Continuing on from my last Blog post, I made another set of cards for a Box Set using Couture Creation’s new ‘Homely Florals’ & ‘5″ x 7″ Background Stamp Set – Release 1’. These are 5″ x 7″ cards.  I made 3, dimensional cards and a box to create a Gift Set.  I mixed the colours this time on these cards but kept some glitter with the embossing powder on the background embossing.  I matted the coloured cardstock and glued it directly onto the card front.   I used a mix of both the black and the white photographic card and heat embossed the background stamps to them.  I trimmed them to a size smaller than the purple mat, blended the dye inks around the edges, mounted them on cardboard then glued them to the card front.  I die-cut the ‘happy’, ‘sending’ and ‘thoughts’ dies from both cardstock and gold mirror board.  I off-set them then glued them both together to give it a shadow effect.   I cut a couple of different sizes and colours of ‘hearts’ for the sentiment ‘my heart is with you’ to be mounted on.

There is a lovely lot of flowers in the ephemera pack so I chose a different selection of flowers  for the cards and added foam tape to the backs.   I added more foam tape under the focal flower to make it higher than everything else. Once all the pieces were ready, I just moved them around until I was happy with the placement.  It was just a matter of glueing/sticking all the pieces in place. I made the box using the diagram with measurements above.   I Scored, cut, burnished and glued it all together.  I have a few photos on my previous post of the assembly of this box.  I kept the box plain but you could bring an element from each of the cards and create an arrangement on the front of the box.
