This was actually a very quick and easy card to make.
I started out with white cardstock, and embossed with my ‘bellish!’ 2-piece embossing folder. I bought mine from Kaszazz (for $40!), but have seen them elsewhere for much less. Unfortunately I can’t remember where. Yikes!!
There are several shapes and designs they come in, but I chose the heart shape because it was ‘softer’.
This ’embossing’ folder both embosses and cuts at the same time, with just one through. As well as what you see above, you also end up with the cut-out heart which is also embossed.
After running through my die-cutting machine, I used my brayer with a rainbow stamp pad, being careful not to press too hard. I only wanted the raised areas inked up, and using too much pressure may leave ink in the other areas.
Once the ink was dry (only a minute or two) I used a black lead pencil, and pressing very lightly, drew an outline of the heart (on the inside sheet) so I could see where to stamp my greeting.
I used the “Love You” stamp from the Inspired by Stamping Just Because stamp set. Once dry, gently erase the outline of the heart cut-out.
To finish off, I stamped little hearts all around the greeting in a variety of colours from the brayered front. (The small heart was from my stash.)
I love this embossing folder because there are so many different greetings you can use to make it into a totally different card. You can also use a variety of colours.
As you can see, this is a very quick and easy card to make.
