Embossing with Botanical Builder Framelits

Hi All

Today I am sharing a card inspired by the colour challenge from CAS Colours & Sketches #178 using Pool Party, Calypso Coral & Pear Pizzazz.

It looks quite simple but I have used a few techniques to create this card.

I used the Layering Square Framelits and Botanical Builder Framelits to emboss the white card. I made my own shim using thick card to only emboss parts of the leaves but I ended up covering the area with the Calypso Coral flower so I didn't need to be fussy about it - at least I have a shim for next time :)

I then used scrap paper to mask around the square, sponging Pear Pizzazz on the bottom left and Pool Party on the top right. I used the embossed lines to add sparkles around the square frame, leaves and flower. I also edged the topper with sparkles.

I had small off cuts of Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz card stock which I added on the right side. I wanted more interest around the card so I added some iridescent sequins which my mum reminded me how much we have in our stash as she talked about adding sequins to her dress. 

After looking at my card, I realised I haven't done any stampin'?! I ended up using the row of lines stamp from the Botanical Blooms set which matches the framelits. I didn't want to overpower the whole card so I used 2nd generation stamping to lighten the ink.

Thank you for stopping by and please comment below what you think of the card.
