hello – thanks for reading Caro’s Pretty Things 🙂
Today I wanted to show you a really simple card using one stamp and some embossing.
Tip: when you are making a card with one repeated image, it’s a good idea to stamp some of the images partially off the edge. It looks more authentic and just seems to make the pattern “work”. (You can also use this technique to make your own gift wrap)
The butterflies look so beautiful embossed!
Although he did a brilliant job for a 4 year old, you can see here that he got some of the versamark ink around the edge of the stamp – which is made more obvious when the embossing powder sticks to it! This is a good reminder to press gently when stamping!
Thanks for reading
** Although Mr 4 did the stamping himself, I held the heat tool with him and we did the embossing together. Heat tools and unsupervised 4 year olds don’t mix!!!
