My new Garden Grace set from PTI just arrived!  Couldn’t wait to play with it!

The pink flowers were heat embossed.  They then “resisted” the ink of the clock where it was stamped over them.  This makes the clock appear to be behind the flowers without having to mask them.  This technique is known as “emboss resist”.

Playing along in some challenges:

CAS-ual Friday #129 “Shades of Gray”

PTI Make It Monday “Color and Texture for One Layer Cards”
Texture was added by the heat embossed flowers, the dry embossed stitching folder at the top and bottom of the card and the punched out window with inset.  Since the inset is adhered to the inside of the card, no additional layers, bulk or thickness was added to the “one-layer” card.

  7. Gorgeous card, Susan! What a great take on both challenges. I just got my Garden Grace set too. You have inspired me to ink it up this weekend.

  8. What a fab technique to create a one layer card, and it’s so beautiful too. Until I read the post, I thought you’d masked the flowers. This is something that will definitely be tried soon. This is a very pretty card with the PTI stamp set. Liked the ‘stitching’ embossing trimming too. TFS & Happy Sunday
