Saying Goodbye: Secret Garden Bundle

Saying goodbye to a favorite stamp set is even harder when it also has coordinating framelits...which is the case with the Secret Garden set. Today I have a card to share that uses the Secret Garden Bundle and a really cool technique created using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

Adhere your punched or die cut pieces onto a cardstock base and then run through your Big Shot using an embossing folder with an all over tight pattern. Once it is embossed, the die cut pieces are embedded into the background, giving it the name Inlaid Embossing. I think it kind of has the look of a woven textile. The Square Lattice Embossing Folder is perfect for this technique. Here's a closer look...

The largest flower was embossed with Pool Party Embossing Powder and then watercolored using the Aqua Painter. Can you spot all the retiring items used to make this card? Check out this photo for some clues...

In addition to the Secret Garden stamp set and framelits, I also used:

  • Express Yourself (Hostess set)
  • Large Pearls (part of this weeks weekly deal!)
  • Square Lattice Embossing Folder
  • Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder
  • Pool Party Core'dinations Cardstock
Today is the last day to take advantage of  FREE SHIPPING so if you don't already have the great products used to create this card, now is the time to get them!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Your card is a gorgeous way to say goodbye to this great flower set. Too bad the dies were all gone before I got them. I love how you embossed in the blue and them watercolored the flower. Also embossing the flowers into the background created a great look.
