Embossed Florals
by Trina Pham


Hello there.  Once again this month’s May Flowers challenge was what inspired my card today.  I did a super easy inking technique on the beautiful Chrysanthemum Field 3D embossing folder (EF) from the Spring collection to create it.

Using a rubber brayer, the flat side of the EF was inked with dye inks in rainbow colors.  Inserted a piece of Bristol paper into the EF and ran it through my Big Shot machine and voila!


Seriously, that’s it! I went with a rainbow palette, but you could simplify the process even further by using fewer colors.


A couple of sentiments from Wild Rose Stem stamp set were white heat embossed on black cardstock and trimmed into strips.  A few clear sequins and clear shimmer spritz to the entire card finished it off (couldn’t capture the sparke).


Since I had the supplies out, I made a couple more thank you cards, but with the  Magnificent Sunflower 3D EF and only three ink colors for each.


The May Flower challenge ends on May 30 EST, so lots of time to enter.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful week!

That is one of the prettiest cards you've ever made, Trina - love the soft colours, the flower pattern, the sequins, and the simple sentiment.

I always have trouble getting even inking with this technique but you've mastered it beautifully, Trina! Love the deep embossing that makes a touchable card!

These beautiful 3-D embossing folders are the perfect designs for this technique, Trina. It really shows off the gorgeous designs. Lovely cards!

All three are so pretty, Trina! The color combos are beautiful. I'd love to try this technique with my 3D embossing folders.
