A Flower Shop and Petite Petals Mother's Day Card

I found a very pretty card at Laurie's "Stamping Up North" blog.  Her card was done using a feather image.  I thought it was pretty but what I really loved about the card was the colors.  So taking those colors I thought I would make a pretty card like hers.  

The colors here are Marina Mist, Baja Breeze and Baked Brown Sugar.  And the words are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  

The technique here is called "Embossed Resist."  It's where you use white or clear embossing powder and then you sponge ink over the top of it.  The embossed image emerges from the white card stock and you can then see it.  

There is also another technique used here, Masking.  The masking part here is the top and bottom part of the card.  I taped down a piece of copier paper on each end and then I did my embossing and after that I left it on to do my sponging.  I did use removable tape to do this.  That is simple masking.  There are other cards and projects that involve more complex masking where you cut out the image and tape the mask over it and sponge.  You can find lots of masking samples on the internet.

This was a fun and very quick card to make.  I tend to not heat emboss much because it means I have to get off my chair and go across the room to do that!!!  So lazy some days!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
