I’m a huge fan of the Hero Arts Bold Prints, how about you? You don’t have to use them in their entirety, you can easily use just a portion of the image:
Today’s cards uses the Garden Bold Prints stamp. I stamped them out on different layering paper A2 card panels. My first trio have been teamed up with the Many Everyday Messages set. The Garden Bold Prints stamp has been heat embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiments are stamped with Intense Black ink.
I thought I would also show an easily ‘stepped up’ version of the design.
These are heat embossed like the other trio but I also added a sentiment from the Just for You by Lia set. That simple gold glitter strip of card stock certainly does make quite the statement, doesn’t it? I know that glitter isn’t for everyone, but I can’t seem to get enough of the stuff.
I managed to design six cards with the same design but with different sentiments.
The beauty of this project is that I have enough embossed panels to make an additional set of six cards! I plan on making them all birthday themed sentiments and give them as a gift to my Mom. They will be quick to put together since all the heat embossing has been completed. I’ll be honest, I tend to shy away from mass production of cards. To me, mass production = more than one card of the ‘same’ design. Doing the work up front with the embossing will make the second set easy to put together!
Thanks so much for stoppin’ by today!
