Simple Embossing with IBS Flower of the Month: Poppies

Happy Friday! 

For my Inspired by Stamping post today, I am sharing an easy-to-emboss card using the gorgeous new Flower of the Month: Poppies stamp set. 

Have you ever been intimidated by images that need to be colored? Today’s card shows you how to create a simple, yet striking, card without coloring.

Let’s take a look:

Using black ink, I stamped the single Poppy image, from the FOTM: Poppies stamp set, in the center of the angled piece of red card stock and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next, I used a mask and stamped the image on either side of the center flower. For a bit more dimension, I stamped and fussy-cut another poppy, then adhered it in the center with pop dots.

Here is a close-up of the sentiment:

The embossed sentiment really is quite striking on the white background. Nice and shiny IRL too!

Now for a look at the inside:

Again, for the inside, I embossed the image and sentiment, then added a scrap of the patterned paper that I used on the front of the card.

What do you think of today’s card? I will enjoy reading your comments!

I am linking today's card to the Mod Squad Challenge Blog - 'Focal Flower' - use a stamped or die-cut flower as the focal point on your card.

Thanks for stopping by!
