288- True Friend Surprise Pop-Up

This card used two really fun techniques- pastel embossing and surprise pop-up. It also used the great new in colours- I love how bright and bold they are.

I used the pastel embossing technique to give the flower some pop. With the Stampin' Up! pastels you get every single colour that we sell (excluding the in-colours). You can add colour to any embossed image using a blender pen (sold in my starter kit) and the pastels- you emboss in white and then colour on top.

To do the surprise pop-up I used sticky strip. I'm telling you- this is a must have product...especially on movable cards. This card does need to be finished off with a ribbon- I'm just waiting to order the new in colour ribbons and I will add the crushed curry ribbon to help pull up the insert. If you are interested in participating in my ribbon share please look at the posting below for more information.
