Embossed Flower Frame

This card features an emboss resist technique. I used the Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions Embossing Folder which required me to rotate and run it though my Big Shot twice. If you have an embossing folder that is a full image, it is only necessary to run it through once. The Finial Press or the Perfect Polka Dots from the Occasions Mini would work great for this.

I cut an oval in a piece of chipboard, used Dotto to stick it to the bottom (do not put it inside the folder) of the embossing folder and then ran it through my Big Shot like I normally do. The hole in the cardboard creates a flat area that the impressions folder can't emboss.

I colored directly onto the flower stamp from Close as a Memory to put the flowers in the center creating a "frame" around them. This card uses Valentine colors, but it could easily go for another occasion.

Supplies:  Close as a Memory stamp set, Real Red, Pretty in Pink cardstock, Real Red, Garden Green ink, Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder, Big Shot, chipboard, Pretty in Pink Taffeta ribbon, Dotto
