Experimenting with Manhattan Flower

Posted by Picasa
I wanted to try something different with the Manhattan Flower textured impressions die today. I used the pink pirouette ink to brayer the die and then embossed it on whisper white cardstock in my Big Shot. Then I cut the embossed flower out and attached it to the basic gray 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card base. This is a fun technique to try with any embossing folder. Sorry the "Mr. & Mrs." is from a retired set. I thought this made a great wedding card.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral (113734),
Ink: pink pirouette (111838), basic gray(109120), whisper white craft ink (101731)
Paper: whisper white (100730) and basic gray (108692) cardstock
Accessories: styled silver Hodgepodge Hardware ((111325), whisper white taffeta ribbon (109070)
