Every couple of weeks I get together with my friends Kathryn and Fiona for a day of stamping. Usually one of us has a new technique or tool to show the others. This time around Kathryn showed us 2 new techniques. The first was using the brayer and creating a sunrise/sunset background. I think I need a bit more practice before showing any cards I make using the brayer!
The second card is this pop-up card. The little tag at the top folds in when the card is folded flat to fit into a standard size envelope. This particular card will be going to my secret sister from SCS. I stamped the large flower from the 5th Ave floral set onto vellum with white ink and then white embossed it. It is then backed with riding hood red cardstock, held together with a pink rhinestone brad, and cut out.
