Happiness Abounds Embossed Birthday Wedding Card. Stampin' Birds Showcase Blog Hop

  Good Morning Everyone

Happy Saturday - It's Stampin' Bird's Blog Hop Day! As usual we don't have a set theme - we are just sharing a project we have created. I hope you enjoy them all.

I created a card very similar to today's card a week or so ago for a blog hop where the theme was embossing. A customer of mine asked if I was able to make something similar but for a wedding card and they asked for Brown and Cream colours. So I thought I would see how that particular design would look. What do you think?

Here's the two I created side by side to show you how different they both look. I absolutely love that you can use the same design, stamp set and embossing folder- switch up the colours and sentiments and get two totally different looks!


Early Espresso Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"


Soft Suede Card Stock

1pc - 1" x 5 3/4"

Crumb Cake Card Stock

1pc - 1" x 5 3/4"

Sahara Sand Card Stock

1pc - 1" x 5 3/4"

Very Vanilla Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"



Take the Early Espresso card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base, adding the Very Vanilla panel to the inside.

Line the 1" strips up so they are offset and tape together on the back with some double sided tape. 

Take this piece and dry emboss using the Pretty Flowers embossing folder and your Stampin Cut & Emboss machine. I decided to use the de-bossed side this time - which I think looks great!

Add this to the card front.

On scraps of Very Vanilla stamp the large flower and the two small flowers in Versamark and heat set with your heat tool - cut out using the coordinating dies, or they are pretty easy shapes to fussy cut. Add these onto the card front lower left side.

Take a strip of the early Espresso card stock and stamp the sentiments separately in versamark ink, sprinkle with gold embossing powder and heat set with your heat tool. Trim down and add banner tails to either side and place onto the card front with dimensionals.
