Be Bold....and Beautiful!

 Hello friends! 

I am sharing a very bright card. Each element was all leftover from previous projects. 

 Monstera 3D Embossing Folder

They are beautifully die cut, layered and assembled. I deiced to create a very vibrant background to showcase them.

👉👉When it comes to Embossing Folders, I'd like to think that they are "blank canvas" with prints. They can be completely plain, whit or colored.  It all depends on what you wish to convey in your designs. The use of embossing folders can be soft and subtle or bright and happy...! I can see whey they have made a huge comeback.

For today's card, each element is "loud". In order to make sense of the design, we need a strong background to pull in all the elements.

For the dry-embossed background, I used piece of white card stock and applied ink to the surface of the embossing folder with light minty green. I repeated with each inking (to the embossing folder) a few times. I heavily applied more green with ink-blending tools. 


The flowers and embossed background were inked. I used Gradient card stock for the leaves. How do you like this bold design? After all, it's a celebratory card with bold and happy colors, right?! 

Lastly, I want to point out that these storage pouches (affiliated linked below) are awesome. I used them for storing small die pieces (such as alphabet sets ) or/and frequently-used intricate stamp sets.
