Farewell ~ Love and Affection from Stampin’ Up!

We are about 5 days away from say a fond farewell to the 2016 ~ 2017 catalog.  One of the set that is retiring is Love and Affection (which is still available as I write this 🙂 )

This is such a pretty set that I have used on a number of projects, with its little flower and leaf elements, you can build up a design and 3 lovely greetings in a lovely cursive font.  I have one more card to share which features heat embossing with the copper embossing powder.

Card base: 11 x 4 1/4 Tangerine Tango Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2,

Layer 1: 4 x 4 Whisper White Card

Layer 2: 4 x 2 Whisper White run thru the Big Shot with the Floral Attraction Embossing Folder as close to the edge as possible.

Layer 3: 3/4 x 4 Copper Foil

Versamark and Copper Embossing Powder was used to create the design.  I placed the greeting first then the largest of flowers, I then sprinkled and heat set the copper embossing powder before stamping the other images – that way I was able to see my ‘spaces’ so I would not get any overlapped images.

The thin strip of copper foil was attached to the back of the heat embossed piece.  I adhered the 4 x 2 embossed piece to the card with some snail adhesive, then placed the 4 x 4 piece (with copper strip) onto the base card so I got an even margin of the Tangerine Tango around all the edges.

Nothing else was added – I think the Copper Embossing takes center stage without any further embellishment + it is a very flat card for putting in the post!
