Embossed Tropical Flowers

Good morning!

This morning I'd like to share one of my favorite cards that I've made with Gina's Tropical Blooms stamp set. The close up view shows some of the details.....

I punched out a Pacific Point Giga Scallop Oval and stamped the image in white ink and embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment is stamped in black versafine ink and embossed in clear embossing powder too because I really wanted it to pop.

I ran a piece of SU's going gray cardstock through my cuttlebug with this really neat floral embossing folder and highlighted the flowers with CraftT's Metallic Rub-on paste. This folder is one that comes with die cut words too - in case you were wondering... A pearl finishes off the flower's centers.

I used GinaK's 120lb. cardstock as the base of the card - wow, is this cardstock the best! It is so thick and sturdy. And, based on how many packages we've sent out of this stuff, I know many of you know how awesome it is too! lol!

There are so many people hurting this time of year, it just seemed fitting to make a card to have on hand like this one. I love the sentiments in GinaK's Punchy Words stamp set and use it often on my cards because of the clean, delicate font of all the sentiments.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
