Heat Embossed Flower Anniversary Card

Another card ticked of my list of "to be made" cards.

I used a four and a half inch square piece of white card and ran an antistatic chalk pad over the surface.  I then stamped the flower, which is part of the Hobby Art Stamps "Abstract Flowers CS175D" stamp set, stamped in Wow! Clear Embossing Ink, which I then coated in Wow! "Rich Gold" Embossing Powder and heat set.

I then coloured the white card with two colours of Derwent Inktense Pencils, applied with a paint brush.  Using "Burnt Orange" for the flowers and "Neutral Grey" for the background.  Once dry, I then added dots of white and gold gel pen.  I used a black fine line pen to fill the central dots of the flowers, then mounted the card on to a piece of black paper and then on to a white card blank.

Finally, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the "Happy Anniversary" greeting, which is part of the Funky Fossil Designs "Stripped Back Sentiments" stamp set.  I then die cut the stamped sentiment in to a banner shape, using sticky foam pads to elevate the greeting off the surface of the card.


  1. These gold embossed flowers look great Sam and love your watercolouring using the Inktense Pencils in orange and grey with gives great contrast, and the added penwork in white and gold really adds to the background, and the black micron pen for the centres makes the flowers really pop. x
