Inked Embossing: Yellow Flowers with Orange and Brown

A beautiful bright card.  The inked embossing, curved banner, and knotted twine provide lots of texture and visual interest within the monochromatic color scheme.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) lemon tart (light yellow), cocoa bean (brown), and stamper's select white.
  • Patterned paper is the bitty dot print from PTI orange zest pattern pack (tone-on-tone prints - retired).
  • Embossing folder is by Sizzix - name unknown.  After embossing, I lightly rubbed the raised surface with PTI harvest gold (medium yellow), summer sunrise (yellow-orange), orange zest, and honey nut (golden brown) ink cubes (applying the ink cube surface directly to the card stock.)  I kept my ink coverage spotty to create a variegated effect, but as the last step, I went over everything with the lightest color (harvest gold) to soften some of my ink edges.
  • Twine is PTI orange zest twine.
  • Die is from PTI banner style.
  • The sentiment "just a note" is from PTI winter woods, curved on the acrylic block to fit the banner and stamped with PTI cocoa bean ink cube.
Created for Operation: Quiet Comfort.
