Hello Honey Bee friends! My card today features the beautiful Potted Poinsettias stamp set and coordinating Honey Cuts. The new Kaleidoscope 3D Embossing Folder made the perfect background for these gorgeous watercolored poinsettias!
First I created the background by running some dark green cardstock through my die cutting machine with the Kaleidoscope 3D embossing folder. I love the look of inked edges on colored cardstock, and I used a couple detail blender brushes to ink up the edges with Rustic Wilderness and Black Soot Distress Ink. Then I used a paintbrush to dilute some gold metallic watercolor and add splatters to the embossed panel. Next I used Bee Creative glue to adhere the panel to an A2 card base.
Then I stamped all of the flowers, leaves, the bow and sentiment from the Potted Poinsettias set onto Bristol Smooth cardstock with Bee Creative Clear Embossing ink. Don’t forget to use your anti-static tool first! Then I sprinkled on gold embossing powder and heat set it.
I used some watercolors I have in my stash to paint the flowers and other elements of the image. I ended up not using the other poinsettias, but now I have some to use for another card! I watercolored the bow with the same gold metallic watercolor that I splattered on the background. Once everything was dry, I die cut the images with the coordinating Honey Cuts. I added foam tape to the back of the die cuts to pop them up on the card front.
I’m so happy that embossing folders have come back on trend! Honey Bee’s Kaleidoscope 3D folder is one that can be used for any other time of the year, which makes it even more awesome!! Thank you so much for stopping by today!
