Flower Silhouette!


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time again with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Our challenge hostess for the month, Tosh is continuing to challenge us to use our tools. This week the challenge is to use our embossing folders.

I must admit I have quite a collection of embossing folders, so this is a great challenge. There are some tools that we have now that I wonder how we managed without them years ago before they were introduced, I certainly wouldn’t want to go back to those days LOL!

For my card I used my Cuttlebug Retro Kitchen Embossing Folder to emboss the pink designer paper on the base of my card. It is the same designer paper that I used on the panel my flowers are on but one I embossed and the other I left plain.

The flowers used on this card are MFT Stamps Die-namics Flower Silhouette Die & Stamp Set. This is one of MFT Stamps combo stamp sets and die-namics die. The die is the flower shape you see in the photo below. The set comprises of 3 flower stamps, the outline one seen on the front of my card, a solid flower and the patterned flower which I have used on the inside of my card. I love that I can die cut the flowers and then stamp the flower over the top rather than having to cut out the whole thing, so much easier!

Here is the inside of my card. As I said above I used the patterned flower which is also included in the set as well as one of the sentiments.
