Moxie Fab World Olympics of Stamping Challenge
This is my entry in the "Thinking of You" category.
I stamped the flower image and sentiment using basic gray ink on letterpress cardstock.
Cut out using a spellbinders nestability.
Using a mouse pad and the small end of an embossing tool I embossed around the flowers and stems.
I then turned the image over and using the large end of the embossing tool I embossed the flowers inside the outline of the image.
Using the largest die from the nestability I cut basic gray card stock.
Then pierced the gray paper around the edge using a In Stitchz piercing tool and mat.
Finished this layer by sewing through the pierced holes using gray and white embroidery floss.
Before adhering the white layer to the gray layer I put a small amount of crumpled tissue paper behind the flowers to add a little more dimension.
Stamped the butterfly, cut it out and added to front of card.
Mounted on white A6 size card.
