Debossed Gracious Floral Thanks
by Anne Thompson

Experimentation continued in my craft room this week which resulted in a debossed image of the Gracious Floral and this thank you card.

to make this card

  • start with a plain white note card
  • cover the front with a green plaid paper from MAGNOLIA PLAID PP1021
  • ink the inside of the GRACIOUS FLORAL 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER EF1026 with VersaFine Clair Rain Forest (green) ink; put a piece of white card stock inside the folder and run it through your embossing machine to deboss the image which pushes it down rather than raising it up
  • color the Gracious Floral with colored pencils
  • trim it to 4 X 5 1/4; back it with a piece of black card stock trimmed closely
  • decide on the orientation of the card--I chose top-fold because of where I wanted to place the sentiment
  • stamp "thanks for all you do" from the GRACIOUS FLORAL CLEAR STAMP SET CL5280 using the VersaFine Clair Rain Forest ink
  • add tiny amber FAIRY JEWELS /BRIGHT JWL003 to the flower centers
  • add larger amber AUTUMN FAIRY CRYSTALS CRY101 in white space on the card front
  • add the finished panel to the front of the note card

This was really a happy accident as I thought I had inked up the side of the folder that would emboss rather than deboss the image.  I decided to work with it and colored everything but the flowers as if they were all leaves, trying to match the ink's green with an appropriate colored pencil.  Maybe this is more inspiration for this month's green blog challenge.

Happy Crafting!
