White Embossing and the
Very Best of Recent Pins

I saw an idea on Pinterest that caught my eye using a flower stamp, Versamark clear ink and white embossing powder:

Mask. Stamp a couple of images in VersaMark on white cardstock & heat emboss in clear. Sponge. Then stamp the same image in different colors over the sponging.

I was drawn to the simplicity and lots of white space on this card....so I gave it a try:

Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Messages for Mom
Silhouette Sentiments
Wonderful Words

I was just about to give this card away,
turned it over to put my HOMMARK CARD
sticker on the back...and when I turned it back
over, there was a hot pink smudge in the
white space! YIKES!...so adding a few flowers
in the white space let me fix it in a hurry!

How to make this card: Cut a 2" x 4 1/4" rectangle and do all of the stamping, embossing and sponging on that piece of white card stock before adhering it to the front of an A2 card. Those Itty Bitty Background dots added that final finishing touch! Be sure to wipe off any ink on the white embossed images with Kleenex because it will rub off onto your hands, the card base and the envelope!

Here are a few more white embossed pins:
