52 Shades of Anything But Grey - Gratitude

Posted on June 5, 2020 at 7:55 AM

A very simple but really pretty card with a lot of texture today. A simple stamped and embossed background provides the backdrop for a single bloom. The wording is embossed with Hero Arts 'Old French Writing' and embossed in silver embossing powder. The flower stamp is from Stampin Up and was stamped onto acetate and heat embossed with Black Soot embossing powder.

Then lovely Distress Glitter is used on the reverse to give a really subtle effect. I have added a piece of florist wire stem and a simple sentiment from my home-made collection to finish this one off. I love the simple but elegant finish to this piece and the silver embossed background works so well on the black card that really, little else is needed. So the topic for today was 'Gratitude' and the techniques are:

  • stamped and heat embossed background
  • stamped acetate with distress glitter
Thanks for reading!
