Elements of Style Embossed Stencil Card

The third installment of my Elements of Style Card Set ensemble features an embossed stencil technique (I love this technique!).  You can see the first and second card designs in my previous posts: Embossed Vine Cards and Shimmery Hummingbird Cards

Embossed Stencil Details

I began with a piece of decorative Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper.  Then, I tried out the new Mostly Vintage Stencils from the Summer Mini.  These stencils come with both a positive and negative stencil, for even more versatility (I used the "positive" one here).  Ink over the stencil, keeping it firmly in place, with VersaMark, then add Clear Embossing Powder and heat until smooth.  I sponged on Sahara Sand ink to reveal the clear stenciled pattern.   

Other Card Details: Flowers were colored with Watercolor Crayons and a Blender Pen, then layered on Chocolate Chip card stock.  I used two Rose Red Curly Label punches to create the curvy border.  It's finished off with a Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon and a sentiment from Tiny Tags punched with the Jewelry Tag Punch (both still available to purchase).

Tomorrow, I'll show you the Purse Tote that holds all the cards, and you can see the whole ensemble!  Or, maybe I should consider holding off until next Fall to show you the To-Be-Continued finale!  It is almost May sweeps week, right?  Nah…
