Just Because....

Here is another quickie! I made this last summer at a local stamp store when they were demoing the embossing plates from Fiskars. You can see on the bottom where I did the rubbing. Just use the plates and a regular embossing stylus and rub back and forth with a little pressure.

I stamped three different flower images which were all from Hero Arts-(sold as a set if I remember right) just above where my embossed rubbing is. I then used chalks to color my flowers to bring out the delicate nature of them. I ran a wide piece of organza ribbon across the flowers, so you don't have to set the chalk as it won't smear with the ribbon over the top-just tape the edges inside the card. I then cut a liner for the card a bit smaller than the base card and taped/glued it to the inside after folding but only on the top. Other wise you end up with a card that won't fold flat.

And to finish, I stamped my message Just Because... and topped each flower on top of the ribbon with a tiny rhinestone crystal to give it some bling. Easy, summer/fall card and very adaptable.


  1. I thought that sentiment was your handwriting and I was impressed! Nice font, very realistic looking for a stamp.
