Step by Step Instructions

1 Cut a piece of thick board to 12cm x 8.5cm and ink the whole surface with the Perfect Medium ink pad.


2 Cover the card with the clear ultra thick embossing crystals.  Do not tap off any excess crystals once the main bulk of the crystals have been removed.


3 Heat from behind the card to emboss the crystals. Once cool apply another layer of Perfect Medium & then a 2nd layer of clear ultra thick embossing powder or use the malachite fire depending on the depth of colour you wish.


4 Apply the 3rd layer by repeating the above process and use the malachite fire to finish the embossed piece.


5 Whilst the piece is still hot ink the flower stamp with the Perfect Medium ink pad and stamp into the embossed piece. Press hard and leave the stamp in the piece for a few seconds before releasing it.


6 Add other flowers towards the bottom edge by heating the embossing crystals again and stamping into the piece as above. Whilst the Perfect Medium is tacky apply the angel gold sparkle mica using a soft brush.


7 Make sure the mica gets into all of the stamped image.


Dust the surface with a clean soft brush to remove any excess mica powder.


Using cut`n`dry foam & vintage photo distress ink, add the ink to edges of the piece and if required over part of the flower with mica on.


10 Swipe the anti static bag over the parchment and stamp the flower at random over the surface.

12 Dust small amounts of the sunny gold, emerald sparkle and iced jade mica in a diagonal direction to keep the colours separate.


13 Fold an A3 sheet of white card in half and trim off the bottom to make a square 21cm x 21cm card. Tear down one edge of the parchment and cut the other 3 sides to fit the base card. Edge the parchment with the gold pen. Attach the piece using 2 brads on the left hand side.


14 Place the embossed centre piece onto a green and blue mat of card. Make a sentiment by stamping and embossing in gold. Tear the edges for a rough look and apply the vintage photo ink to distress the edges. .


15 The finished project.

    Beautiful Suzanne, I love the combination of vellum and the triple embossed card, to be honest I had never thought of using them together 🙂
    Hugs, Jen x

    I love all the different techniques used to make this card. I especially like the malachite fire and it’s now on my shopping list. Don’t have the wild flowers stamp but loads of others that I can bring out of retirement!
    Thanks Suzanne for another brilliant tutorial.
