For both cards I used the Emboss Resist technique, so for the first card I stared by stamping the floral image from the Blooming Branches Stamp on different places of the white card panel until the whole panel was stamped. Then, I covered the stamping with white embossing powder, and I used the heat tool to heat set it until the powder was melted. Once the heat embossing was done, I inked it up the card panel with a combination of two Distress Oxide inks in the colors Shaded Lilac, and Spun Sugar for a soft tone look. As soon as the inking was done, I cleaned the excess from the ink that was sited on the white embossing. Then, I slightly trimmed the edges of the card panel.
To embellish the card panel, I wrapped a few times metallic silver thread creating five lines as you can see in the picture above, and I adhered the backed of the card panel to an A2 top folding card base with foam mounting tape. As for the sentiment I ran though the die-cutting machine one of the Essential Stitched Labels Crafting Dies to die-cut a label out of white cardstock. Once the die-cutting was done I stamped, and heat embossed two sentiments from the Blooming Branches stamp set, and I adhered the backed of the label to the card. Finally, to finish the card off I tied a bow by using the same metallic thread, and I tucked it in the top corner of the label.
For the second card, I repeated exactly the same steps as the previous example. But, to change the background a little bit I decided to adhere a piece of vellum on top of the inked/embossed card panel for a frost look. As for the sentiment I used the same label die as the previous example, also I decided to die-cut the Hello which is included in the Blooming Branches Crafting Dies out of white card stock 3X because I wanted to add a little bit of dimension by stacked them one on top of the other. As you can see in the picture above, I also used the same metallic silver thread to embellish the card by adhering it underneath the sentiment.
Finally to finish both cards off, I adhered the second card panel to an A2 size white card base, and I adhered some shimmery iced fusion sequins here and there for a shiny/sparkly look.
