Say Hello with Scribble Roses and Scribble Fronds by Jean Okimoto


Say hello with embossed, layered Scribble Roses and Scribble Fronds...it's quick and easy and perfect for a simple summer greeting.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with another design featuring the the versatile Scribble Roses Outline and Scribble Roses Background dies.  


Cut Scribble Roses background from watercolor paper.  Pressure-emboss the diecuts with the detailed Scribble Roses Outline dies using the embossing mat and plates required for your machine.

Brush Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide over the embossed diecuts.  Stack and adhere the three Scribble Roses.

Cut Scribble Frond Background and Scribble Frond Outline from Flintstone cardstock.

Cut the 2" x 3-¼" Wrapped Stitch Rectangle from white cardstock.

Cut ¾" x 4-¾" amd ¾" x 3-¾" strips of Coral Creme and Patina cardstock.

Stamp "hello" - from the Big and Little Words Clear Stamps Set - on white cardstock with VersaMark.  Heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Sponge the cooled cardstock with Morning Mist VersaFine Claire.  I think this is easier - and smoother - than white-embossing it on dark cardstock.  Trim the greeting.

Attach everything to a top-folded Kraft A-2 card - use foam dots for the greeting.  Add ¼" circles of silver glitter cardstock.


I love finding different ways to use my Memory Box dies - hope you do too!  We'll start making holiday cards at Impress this Satureday - and discover more ways to use the great holiday (and un-holiday) dies and stamps on unique cards.  Hope you'll join us if you're in the Seattle area.

Thanks for stopping by...see you again next week!






That is really clever, Jean. It’s difficult to tell that that is watercolor paper that you have embossed. I can’t wait to try it. Thanks again for the inspiration!

Thanks Jacky! Watercolor paper is great for pressure-embossing. Thanks for taking all of my classes...see you at Impress!
