Embossed Floral Greeting

 I am so excited to share this card I created with the New Totally Tracy Spring into Life Stamp Set! To create this card I started with a 5 1/2 inch card base.  I cut 2 squares of grey cardstock ( 4 1/2 inch, 3 1/2 inch) and dry embossed the square with an embossing folder (Cuttlebug-Oxford). Adhere the larger square to the left side of your card. I then cut 2 squares from white cardstock (3 3/4 inch, 3 inch) and stamped the flower onto the 3 inch stamp using Dare 2B Arty's Totally Black Ink.  I then stamped the flower two more times onto white cardstock and fussy cut these 2 images, one using the full image and one using just the flower center petal.

  I lightly colored my flower and flower pieces with a Distress Marker (Shaded Lilac)


I added the full image on top of the stamped square using dimensional tape and then added the center petal with dimensional adhesive tape.

   I matted the dimensional stamped image onto the embossed grey cardstock and then matted again with the remaining white cardstock square. Adhere to card. Stamp you greeting and mat on grey cardstock and add to your card.  Add your ribbon bows and you are done! Here is a close up of the dimensions on this card.

 Hope you are inspired to get stamping!
