Adding background designs with embossing folders (Altenew Build-A-Flower: Fashion Monger Dahlia Release Blog Hop + Giveaway)

Embossing folders are great for adding design and texture to make a full background. But why not stretch them to use with your slimline card designs and add background designs with embossing folders.  With partial dry embossing using a 3D embossing folder I have been able to create a scene for the new Altenew Build-a-flower: Fashion Monger Dahlia stamp & die to sit on. 

I used a muted tone palette with this months Altenew Build-a-flower, and although this is a Fashion Monger Dahlia, I could see this flower in a red combo and it would give me a Poinsettia vibe? I don’t know, what do you think or am I just mad?!

You should have arrived here from the fantastic Amanda Baldwin. You can always start at the beginning of the hop over at the Altenew Card Blog here.

background designs with embossing folders

partial dry embossing:

Start off by dry embossing the bottom of a slimline card panel with the 3D Brick Wall embossing folder. Using a blending brush, ink blend Stone Blue and the Cove Blue ink onto the non-embossed part of the card panel to create a sky. 

Next stamp two of the Altenew Build-a-flower: Fashion Monger Dahlia flowers onto a white card panel using the following inks: Clay Mask, Orange Peel and Mandarin Spice. For the centre of the flowers, these were coloured with Sauna and Merlot ink

The leaves were stamped in Bay Breeze and Sea Glass inks. After all the stamping was complete, these were cut out with the coordinating dies. The images were clustered over the wall and foam mounted for dimension.

Lastly, a sentiment from the Altenew Build-a-flower: Fashion Monger Dahlia stamp set was heat embossed in gold onto black cardstock and added to the front of the card. A few gold sequins were added to embellish the card.
