Ornate Blossom Gift Card Holder

Tonight I wanted to share a 4x4 gift card holder I demonstrated at a workshop a few weeks ago.  I used the reverse embossing technique on this card.  I started off by stamping a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with Early Espresso Classic Ink using the En Francais stamp.  Next using the Ornate Blossom stamp, I stamped the image in Versa Mark over the words and heat embossed it with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Finally, I brayered the cardstock and image with Early Espresso Ink and then simply wiped the embossed image clean with a paper towel.  The colors I used were Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla. 



I hope everyone has a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend.  Take care.
