Flowers + Gold Embossing

PE: The Paper Players A Cut Above

This is something I wanted to try – flowers with gold embossed outlines. I know I’ve made such cards before, but I think Altenew’s Painted Flowers stamp set is the best to do this. The stamp set just beautifully highlight both the colors and gold embossing. Love it! 🙂

Flowers + Gold EmbossingSo, I first stamped the flowers and then did the gold embossing. The colors I used are Hero Arts Soft Pool, Soft Cantaloupe, Bubble Gum, Memento Lilac Posies. For a couple of the leaves, for which the stamp set didn’t provide the solid stamps, I just made my own using a piece from foam sheet.
