I made these for the moms for Mother's Day... did not get around to making the roses like I wanted - I wanted to make jumbo roses for them.  BTW, they still both have the roses I made for them a few years ago - though MIL keeps moving them onto and of the dining room table and the cats like to play with them, so hers are getting a bit sad looking.

So this year, they got cards and a little gift, plus flowers.


I wanted light and bright, so I went with white cards, with a textured base.  I added a stamped and inked panel, and embossed flowers and sentiment over top.

More about it on my blog if anyone is interested, including more pics.

If anyone is interested in how to make the embossed die cuts, I did a bit of a tutorial here.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Very nice. You are a master of embossing, mine sure never turn out that great!

Thanks - live and learn.  Some tips are that if you hold the piece up and off the surface, it heats faster, move your heat gun, so it's not concentrating the heat too much, and the moment you see the colour change, move the heat off elsewhere - over-melting causes the plastic to flatten, absorb into the paper, and become dull.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

These cards are gorgeous! I never got the hang of embossing either, but you do such a great job on it!
