Embossed Stencil Summer Card


What says Summer more than flowers and butterflies? Lots of steps to my card today, but not a lot of time to explain it.I stamped an old TAC word background, then embossed and sponged a Memory Box butterfly stencil using my No More Shims embossing pad. The trellis was made with the Stampin' Up chevron punch. I learned how to make the floral cone in this month's issue of Die Cut Crazy (digital die cut magazine only 99 cents a month direct to your iPhone or iPad.) This card is part of my new stencil techniques class in my home.

I am entering this card in the Summer challenge at Brown Sugar and the Anything Goes challenge at QKR Stampede.

This turned out really cute, Karen. Last month's issue of DieCutCrazy had tons of great ideas in it!

Hi Karen, Thanks for joining as a new follower. Didn't realize it, but I already followed your blog! Loved the way you have used so many beautiful elements on this pretty card. The tiny bright flowers & foliage peaking out of the flower cone is gorgeous against that dp print with the embossing. Lovely trellis too. Off to check out some of your other posts that I've missed. TFS & Hugs.
