For my first card I used Rose Gold embossing powder & a flower in the 2010 HA set called Blossoms. I used Bristol paper & colored with 2 blue & 2 gray Zigs.
I added blue splatters, die cut with a stitched rectangle, cut it into a triangle & mounted it with fun foam. The sentiment from an old HA set called Made with Love was triple embossed on the textured blue panel using the Rose Gold powder.
I picked real stitching for the 3 of us because I wanted to do some cross stitching. I had previously sent some MFT Cross Stitch Tag die cuts to Betty & Cat, so knew they had that option if they wanted.
My main craft activity before I started stamping was Counted Cross-Stitch & I've enjoyed doing some again using the MFT die. The flower pattern is one provided by MFT here. I love the flowers done in 3 shades of blue & now I want to try other colors. The card front needed something that wouldn't detract, so I white embossed a 2005 HA flower from Fashion Flowers. Maybe you can see it in the close up.
I'm entering both cards & envelopes in the HA challenges. I'm entering both cards at ABNH.
