A snazzy embossed background can define a pretty card. I added VersaMark Ink to the inside of my Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The result? An artful richness that makes the embossing come alive. Today’s 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial shows you the super simple procedure!
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- The layered butterfly combines a crop from the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die (Lucky Limeade) and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die. Did you notice that these little beauties nest perfectly? I used a touch of VersaMark on the edges for definition.
- To keep the card simple, I used Stampin’ Up! Printed Designer Brads in two different spots, merely changing the colors. A huge benefit of using Stampin’ up! products is that it’s so easy to coordinate within color collections.
- Stampin’ Up! Builder Punches get amazing mileage. The two stems are from the Bird Builder Punch.
- Solid Versamark coverage on the finished background looks lovely. However, I think the effect of an uneven inking is an even more engaging effect. Take a look at this background before I added the embellishments.
