Arteza Marker Coloring and Tim Holtz 3D Folder

For today's card I wanted to try out the Tim Holtz Botanical 3D embossing folder that came in the Simon Says Stamp June card kit.


It is recommended to spray the paper you emboss with this folder generously with water before using the 3D folder. This helps it to emboss without ruining the paper. I would recommend being very careful when you remove the paper from the folder because it is delicate while it is still wet.


I used the stamp set from the June kit to stamp all of the single flowers. I have used the really big flower bunch from the stamp set many times already so I decided to use the single flowers this time. I colored them in using my Arteza Real Brush Pens.


For the sentiment on this card I stamped the one from the kit that says "Love & Hugs" on some light grey cardstock with Versamark ink. I heat embossed the sentiment using a white embossing powder. To finish the card I added a few clear and white sequins.
