Manhattan Flower

For today's card I used the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Manhattan Flower which creates a strong embossed image and is sized for the front of a standard card. I embossed the image on vellum cardstock with the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine and cut around the flower. Layering it onto a piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock the image really stands out. A touch of ribbon and a sentiment finish the card. I saw similar versions of this card on several other Stampin' Up blogs, so thanks go to all of those demonstrators out there who share their wonderful ideas.

Today's tip: When making a card, why not make two. If you are cutting a standard piece of cardstock in half you already have the base for two cards so just finish the second one with everything but the sentiment. Later when you need a card in a hurry you will have a nice supply on hand to choose from. Today I made the Manhattan Flower card a birthday card, but I could use the second card for Get Well, Thank You, Thinking of You, or whatever the occasion calls for.

To make this card I used the following:
Cardstock: Crushed Curry #115319, Vellum #101856
Ink: Rich Razzleberry #115658
Accessories: Big Shot Die Cut Machine #113439, Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder #114517
Stamp Set: Well Scripted #117071 (Occasions Mini)
Ribbon: Crushed Curry Polka Dot Grosgrain #115614
