StampinByHannah InspireINK Blog Hop Stitched All Around Embossed Anniversary Card
Thanks so much for stopping by here at StampinByHannah today, I LOVE taking part in the InspireINK blog hops with some of my Stampin’ Sisters. Today the very lovely Sally Shaw has picked our theme; Embossed Anniversary!
This is quite timely for me with my 3rd Wedding Anniversary in a couple of weeks time, I will share the card I make for my husband once he has actually seen it so today’s card is a bit of a twist on the theme. It does feature embossing, but the sentiment isn’t quite anniversary, can you forgive me for that? This card would make a really lovely card for an anniversary though, you’d just need to change the sentiment.
This card uses the fabulous Stitched All Around Bundle, which has a lovely mix of cutting and embossing dies, as well as some really pretty stamps, and I am more than a little in love with that label piece!
To create the background I first stamped a piece of Gray Granite card stock with Gray Granite ink. Then I ran it through the Big Shot with the background die from the set. This die isn’t designed to cut at all, instead it embosses and it works really really well with the new Stampin’ Up! Big Shot Embossing Mats and the following Big Shot Sandwich;
- Big Shot Platform,
- Cutting Mat, Die (with the embossing edge facing upwards),
- card stock,
- THIN blue embossing mat
- white impressions pad.
I do have a video on my YouTube channel showing this sandwich if you want to check it out.
The circle piece is actually 3 dies layered together, with the heart and smaller circle embossed, before the outer circle was die cut. The card is completed with a heat embossed sentiment on a label cut from Merry Merlot card stock, and a trio of Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins
Do hop along to check out the other Embossed Anniversary card creations, and I hope to see you again!
