For my first card, I used Holiday Roses which is a Valentine's Day set. The etched details on the bouquet reminded me of a heavily woven damask. Using my MISTI and Versamark Ink, I stamped the bouquet several times onto a light peach card stock cut to 4" x 5.25". I then added Ranger Gold Super Fine Detail embossing powder to the panel and heat embossed this image. I then inked the edges of the panel with Versamark and added more gold embossing powder just to give this a finished look.
I stamped the sentiment which is from Lotus Blooming using my MISTI and Versamark ink onto to vellum. I was careful to treat the vellum beforehand with an antistatic tool and while embossing I kept my tool moving around the surface to prevent warping. I then die cut this out using a smaller rectangle from Hero Arts Infinity Dies. For this I also used Ranger Super Gold Fine Detail embossing powder.
I cut a piece of the peach card stock with the next size down die and adhered the vellum with liquid adhesive. I added the glue behind several of the letters. I popped this sentiment panel up onto the main panel with 3M foam tape. I then used liquid adhesive to adhere the main panel to the a light grey card.
