I recently purchased this stamp and die set from Simon Says Stamp. When I stamped the images the lines are pretty thick, so I kept the stamps in place in my MISTI so I could embossed them in gold when the coloring was complete.
The images were colored with Copic Markers and then stamped again and heat embossed gold. They were then cut using the coordinating dies.
The images were arranged on my desktop the way I liked them and then held in place with Glad Press 'n Seal.
A panel of white cardstock was cut down with a stitched rectangle die and then dry embossed with a textile embossing folder. The panel was matted with some black cardstock cut 1/8" larger than the panel. The two were adhered together with liquid glue and then adhered to a top folding cardbase with dotliner adhesive.
The leaves and small flowers were adhered in place with liquid glue. The wonderful thing about using Press 'n Seal is that you can adhere a portion of the images with liquid glue and then pick up the top images and add low loft foam tape to create dimension. The Press 'n Seal lets you place the top flowers just were you want them.
The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of black cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed gold. It was cut down with a sentiment label die. On end was angled, low loft foam tape was added to the back and then it was adhered in the lower right of the card.
A few Studio Katia Iridescent Crystals were scattered around the flowers and the card was done.
