Love & Affection and a Touch of Copper with Global Design Project #037 Card with Video

I saw a beautiful card a few days ago by Dawn Woleslagle and was inspired. I used the colours from the Global Design Project #037 Colour Challenge

I started the card with a Whisper White card stock piece slightly smaller than a standard card. I mounted majority of the image stamps from the Love & Affection set onto our Clear Blocks and grabbed the 3 ink colour Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macron and Island Indigo. I stamped the flowers in the corner first and extended and filled in with the other stamps from there. I cleaned each stamp after using it so it was ready for the next colour. Once I was happy with the composition I took the sentiment to make sure it fitted and I didn't need any extra stamping. To ready the area for embossing I ran the Embossing Buddy over the card from to ensure no stray pieces of powder where I don't want them, I stamped the sentiment also from the Love & Affection set in Versamark ink and covered the image in Copper Embossing powder and used our Heat Tool to melt the powder. I added a few more imaged around the sentiment to finish off the card from and mounted it with Stampin' Dimensionals to a Island Indigo Card Base.

You can how my design process works, hints and some chat with friends by watching the video for how I made this card on Periscope
