Sweet Stampin' - Emboss It

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's that time of the week again --- it's Sweet Stampin', and my turn to share my Design Team card with you. Our fab theme this week is 'Emboss It' - so that can be dry embossing, inking and embossing, or using an embossing folder - basically as long as you included a stamped element any 'embossing' is fine.

For my card I used cute My Favourite Thing (MFT) stamp set called 'You Have My Heart' - just in case you're interested there is also a die set that co-ordinates with this too.  I stamped and coloured this cute pair with Copics, used texture paste on the starry sky, and stamped and embossed my sentiment.


Here's What I Did
I used a 5" x 5" scalloped white card base. I then die cut a square from white card and die cut another square inside it, to create a frame. I added foam tape to the back of the frame to raise it up, Using some mid blue card I die cut another square the same size as before so it would fit inside the frame. Then using a star stencil I taped it in place over the top of the blue square (using removable tape) and plastered glitter texture paste over the top. I carefully removed the stencil from the square and allowed it to dry. Once dry I glued the square inside the white frame.

Next I stamped the girl and her dog and coloured them Copic pens, and then cut them out. I die cut a grassy hill from green card and stamped and embossed my sentiment on the front, and added dots using a white pen.  To finish off I glued the hill and the girl inside the frame.

Adorable layout and I love how you did the stars! This image looks like it was made for your card rather than the other way around. ;)
