I had ordered some rose gold embossing powder a few months ago, and I thought I would try and put it to use today. Typically I use clear or white embossing powders to line an image if I am going to use watercolor because it helps me keep the colors within the line. I also like using white and silver powder for sentiments. Today was the first time I was trying a rose gold color, and when I tested it out on a piece of paper, I thought maybe I would try and use it to outline a flower for a birthday card.
For this card, I used the Flowers in Bloom stamp set from My Favorite Things. I love this stamp! The flowers are so beautiful! I stamped out the image in versafine ink, covered it with some embossing powder, and heat set it. I had some rose gold cardstock, so I decided to cut the flower out with a stitched rectangle die and glue the cardstock behind it to create a border. Then, I used foam tape to attach this piece onto a white dot embossed panel so it would have some dimension. This stamp set didn’t come with a birthday sentiment, so I used a sentiment from MFT’s Sending Sweet Celebrations Wishes stamp set. I stamped, and heat embossed it onto some vellum with the same rose gold embossing powder and attached it to the bottom of the card.
This card was pretty easy to make, and I love the rose gold color! The color is stunning in person, and I think it would also look beautiful stamped out on dark colored card stock. I usually would have used watercolor for these flowers because its perfect for that, but I thought I would try something a bit different today! I decided to enter this card into the MFT Birthday Project Challenge (Birthday Bouquet).
