Special Blues & Greens Embossed

This card uses the embossing technique that I used early in April. Instead of the pinks I went with blues and greens for this one. Check out here to see how to do this.

Materials needed:
Elements of Style stamp set (#120045)
Trust God stamp set (#126702)
Bermuda Bay card stock 3 x 3 3/4" and 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"
White card stock 4 x 5 1/4," 2 3/4 x 3," and 2 x 2 1/2"
Crushed Curry ink
Gumball Green ink
Bermuda Bay ink
Versa Mark ink
Crystal Clear embossing powder
Heat tool
Sycamore Street 1/4" ribbon, Island Indigo (#130812)
Very Vintage buttons (#129327)
Corner Rounder punch
Sponge Dauber (#102892)
Glue Dots

1. Emboss the larger 2 white card stock pieces according to the directions found here.On this card I used the Crushed Curry, Gumball Green and Bermuda Bay inks in that order. Stamp the flurish image on to the colored card stock with Versa Mark ink. Follow the directions on the card link listed here.
2. Round all the corners. Adhere the embossed card stock pieces to the Bermuda Bay card stock pieces.
3. Wrap the Island Indigo ribbon around the card front and tie a bow. Use glue dots to hold in place.
4. Stamp the saying that you want on the smallest piece of white card stock in Bermuda Bay ink. Use sponge daubers to sponge the edges around the saying with Bermuda Bay ink.  Adhere this piece to the center of the 2 3/4 x 3" embossed piece.
5. Add a button to the bottom right side of the saying piece.
6. Adhere the card front on to a card base and add a note or greeting on the inside.
