Today’s card showcases one of the new Heartfelt Creations stamp sets that Cropstop added to the store this year. You’ll want to stop by and check them out – they make beautiful focal points for your cards!
To create this slightly larger card, I embossed a piece of cream cardstock using the Circular Grid embossing folder from Anna Griffin and the Oval Embossing Spacer. Cropstop carries two different wooden spacer plates – a rectangular one and an oval one. It lets you emboss your cardstock leaving a smooth opening for stamping in. I chose a stamp from the All Things Are Possible (Heartfelt Creations) set and stamped it in Black Soot Distress ink. I colored parts of the image in using my Prismacolor Pencils and drew a light oval line around my image using the spacer as a guide.
Those lovely flowers were die cut from the Creative Expressions die, Exquisite Poppy, and have just a bit of Broken China Distress Oxide ink on the outer edges. I used the leaf, branch, and frond punches (Martha Stewart) to add a bit of greenery under my blooms. Tiny white pearls adorn the center. In the upper corner I added a Baker’s Twine bow with a little Candi dot (Saville Row) in the center. (Cropstop sells a wide variety of Candi dots for embellishing your projects – you can check them out here.)
