All images including the sentiment on this card were created on the Silhouette SD. This is the image it all started with.
This is the design that created the floral grouping on the card. I duplicated it several times to make the flowers. Then I used the little individual petals, colored them green and used them as leaves.
This is how it looks right out of the printer. So I decided to add some script and cut it out into a card shape. After doing those steps, it needed a little dimension so I added that by coloring with a white colored pencil around the edges and debossing. These are the tools I used for the debossing.
That is a dry embossing stylus but I chose not to use a light box and I traced around the outline of the flowers with the stylus so the image is de-bossed instead of embossed and below is a close up of that detail.
I think it adds a nice little touch and keeps the image from having a stenciled appearance.
I made this card after visiting the Less is More blog and seeing their challenge for the week. Decided I would play along...what do you think is this Clean and Simple? It is one layer. Does the debossing count as embossing? I hope so. Go over and take a look at all the other wonderful entries.
Thanks for visiting.
