Hello Friend

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it's time to introduce a new challenge hostess which is Anne Harmon.

White embossing is beautiful on neutral colors. For our challenge this week, use white embossing on a card using kraft, or any other shade of brown.

For my card today I used Altenew's Frosted Gardens stamp set,  to white emboss the flower images over my Kraft cardstock panel which had been die cut using a die from Mama Elephant's Framed Tags - Hexastar die set. After embossing the images, I masked off the scalloped border at both ends and used white paint to splatter over the panel. This panel was then adhered to a white top folding card.

I used Taylored Expressions Framed Script - Hello sentiment which I did cut from white cardstock three times and layered together. I adhered this sentiment to a Kraft panel, sponging around the edges of the panel using Kraft ink.

To finish off the front of the card I added the "My Friend" sentiment from a Paper Roses stamp set to the bottom right hand corner of the sentiment panel.

For the inside of the card I die cut and stamped two more panels exactly the same as the front of the card. I trimmed these two panels off so only about 3/4's of the panel remained and adhered these to the top and bottom panels on the inside.

I used Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set to create the pop up portion of the card.

For the sentiments on the pop-up label I used Honey Bee Stamps Bloom stamp set and coordinating die set.
