Simon Says Stamp - Cherry Blossoms Missing You Card


Red embossed Christmas Card with All The Joy sentiment.

Hello Lovelies! I don't think card is very "cherry-blossomy", but I had a lot of fun making it! Something about the reveal when you open up the inked embossing folder and get to see how it came out.


It's the same feeling when I pull back the foil from a foiling project. The best thing about this is that it is so easy to do and you can change up the color palette if yellow and purple aren't your thing.

CARD WALKTHROUGH

LETTERPRESS EMBOSSING

  1. Open the Cherry Blossoms Embossing Folder and the side of the folder where the cherry blossom flowers are NOT raised (protruding/sticking out) but the background IS raised.

  2. Use the Zest Ink Pad to lightly ink the raised surface of the cherry blossom background as shown below.

  3. Mist a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of watercolor cardstock with water.

  4. Place the slight damp cardstock into the embossing folder, aligning on the non-inked side.

  5. Close the inked side over the cardstock carefully and run through a die-cutting machine.

  6. Clean the embossing folder of any residual ink.






 

DIE-CUTTING & INK-BLENDING


  1. Die-cut 5 cherry blossoms using the matching dies that come with the folder.

  2. Place the die-cut blossoms into matching spaces in the embossing folder and run through a die-cutting machine.

  3. Ink a flat topped blending brush with Lilac ink and blend into the center of the flowers in a circular motion.



 

STAMPING

  1. Stamp the solid rectangle using the size that matches the "missing you" sentiment with Lilac ink.

  2. Heat set to ensure that the ink is fully dry and then stamp 'missing you" in the Lilac rectangle



ASSEMBLY

  1. Use foam tape to pop up the sentiment.

  2. Adhere the Lilac blossoms with craft glue or with foam dots where you need to pop them up.



 


The ink gets onto the petals, but I think it's pretty and adds definition.




This color combo may be a bit non-traditional but I think brings out the beauty of the blossoms!
