Started this crochet rug a few weeks ago and it's coming along with me tomorrow as we head off for a couple nights up the coast with the grand daughters as it's school holidays... perfect weather too.   And found a few minutes late this afternoon to finish off this card.

I used a circle border die to impress the edge of white card panel and stamped and clear embossed the sentiment.  Die cut the gum leaves and blossoms and smooched with Distress Inks in greens, masking the flowers then reverse mask to add the red - finished with some fine pencil line details and attached to the card.

Elements used - Stamping, heat embossing, dry embossing with dies, die cuts, smooching
Thanks for stopping by my blog  --- have a Happy Day and stay safe
