Blossom Fan

Hi everyone!  Today's card uses one of the brand new In'spire line of dies called Blossom Fan.  I think this fan has a lovely design -I love the roses!
 Here's what the die looks like:
My card measures 41/4" square and on the fan die cut, I sponged Versamark ink into the raised "fan pieces" for added depth and embossed some silver foil into the opening details.  Here is a picture showing how I did it.  I ended up using red for my card, but my first attempt was in pink.  You can see I trimmed the foil, glued it down on the back side and then embossed it, pushing the foil through the openings.  Kinda cool!
I used my Classic Squares LG to make a black frame and popped it up with dimensions over a Scalloped Squares frame of wood grain paper.  I glued the sentiment across the corner.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here is a close up picture.

  1. Oh how pretty. Glad to see the fan cut out, its prettier than I thought. Love how you did the trick with the foil, what a unique idea and it really looks lovely on the fan.

  2. I love how you added the silver foil behind the cut out pieces. And the embossing on the raised pieces gives them beautiful dimension. Amazing card.

  3. Beautiful card - great tip to emboss the silver inlay!

  4. Wow, that is so elegant. What a cool technique!

  5. What an elegant fan, love the silver inlay.
