Close as a Memory embossed

This is a card I made for a technique workshop last month.  The technique was embossing and this was a great card to show off how great black looks on white and vice versa.  I totally cased this card here on SCS and used the classic stamp set Close as a Memory.  Thanks for the inspiration!  And what a lovely sympathy card …

Thanks for looking 🙂


Close as a Memory … emboss resist

Emboss resist is a really cool technique which, I thought, looked fab using Close as a Memory.  Fortunately, I don’t have anyone to give this card to yet.   I made it for a technique workshop the other night.


I stamped the flowers in Versamark, then embossed it with white embossing powder.  After that, I sponged Kiwi Kiss ink over the image … and then polished it off with a tissue.  Using my double-rectangle punch, I added the Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla satin ribbon which coordinates with the Kiwi Kiss paper I’ve used.

Thanks for looking 🙂
