Fabulous Florets Calming Card

Everyone needs a bit of encouragement every once and a while and this FABULOUS FLORETS KEEP CALM card is just the ticket!  I LOVE the Fabulous Florets stamp set and thought it would be a great pairing with the CARRY ON stamp set– we all can use a note of clarity at times, right?

 I thought that this set was perfect to use for some HEAT EMBOSSING which is a tried and true technique that everyone seems to love!  I then took it a step further and DRY EMBOSSED the image which I thought added a cool effect.  I just love embossing onto darker colored card stock and then cutting it out with a small border left behind- doesn’t that look really cool?!

I of course went with a few challenges to create today’s card.  I got the sketch from the clean and simple blog, the color inspiration came from Annabelle and the theme (which was ALL about EMBOSSING) came courtesy of Cas-ual Fridays.
Here is what I used to create todays card:
