Daisies at Night

Today's card ended up very different than how it started. I wanted to try and create a shadow box effect with the Upsy Daisy stamp set using acetate (which I'm still going to do) but instead ended up making a card. I used the acetate and stamped my daisies in Versa Mark ink, then used white embossing powder and heated it very carefully. The acetate I used is a thicker acetate, more like over head projector sheets, but I still held my heat pretty far away so that I wouldn't melt it. After stamping and embossing the acetate, I then inked up my daisy stamp lightly with white craft ink and stamped it onto Basic Black card stock. I wanted to give the illusion of shadows of daisies in the distance and stamping the daisies on the acetate made it easy to line up the two images. After stamping the black piece of CS, I trimmed it down to the size I wanted and then lined up the acetate on top were I wanted it, then used my bone folder and scored around the edge of the acetate so that I would know where to trim. I used silver brads to hold the acetate onto the card, added two lines of piercing, ribbon and heat embossed the Thank You in white. I'm really liking this Stampin' Up Upsy Daisy stamp set! Its on special this month too (see the sales flyer in my side bar).


Have a wonderful day!
