When I saw this stamp and embossing folder in the Stampin' Up! catalog last summer, it was on my have to have list. And 6 months later I used it.
I love the Wildflower Meadow background stamp and embossing folder. I started with by cutting the card stock in half length wise for a top fold card. Then came the fun part.
I laid the background stamp face up and inked it with grey ink. I wiped off the flowers and stems and colored them pink and green. It took some time to get the pink right because it is the darkest color. Then, very carefully, I laid a piece of white card stock down and stamped it.
I did this stamping very carefully. I didn't want to smear the image or drop the paper or any of the other hundred things that were going through my mind. But It worked. After I was finished with my "I didn't mess it up dance", I embossed it with the coordinating embossing folder. Then I trimmed it to fit the front of the card base. I wish I had gotten a better picture of the embossing.
For the inside, I inked up the stamp in the same grey ink, stamped it off and then stamped the inside panel. I added a sentiment and decided to stop fussing with it before I messed it up :)
Thanks for looking!
