Creative Challenge for December

Do you look forward to our monthly Creative Challenges as much as we do? Get ready to be inspired for the final challenge of 2022!

This month we are using embossing folders in a creative way. Our concept artist chose the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and a variety of Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads (Balmy Blue, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Petal Pink, So Saffron, and Soft Seafoam) to create a posh and upscale card that’s super-easy to make.

Using the Blending Brushes, apply a heavy amount of ink to the positive side of the folder in slightly slanted rows. Then, take a piece of Basic White Cardstock, insert it inside the embossing folder, and run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. The color goes on beautifully on the debossed parts and creates lovely, white, distressed spaces on the raised areas.

Multipurpose Liquid Glue is perfect for adhering the gold, framed piece to the sentiment and the Split Card Textures die cut to the card front. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the tag, and Glue Dots to adhere the Simply Elegant Trim and the leaves cut from Soft Sea Foam and Vellum Cardstock.

Finish it by adding a few Brushed Butterflies for extra glitz. So pretty!
