The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card is fast and easy! The Bloom Hybrid embossing folder does all of the work.  With a hybrid embossing folder, the coordinating dies actually fit inside the embossing folder so you can cut and emboss at the same time, which is exactly what I did with the three large flowers.  Foil leaves were die cut, and then the leaves and flowers were added to a Tasteful Textile embossed panel. The flowers were offset to the lower right of the card, leaving lots of space at the top for ANY sentiment you would like. This way, you can create a few to have on hand, and then add the sentiment when needed.
