For day 2, we are showcasing the Orchids Stamp Set and coordinating die.

For my card below, I also used the Frames and Tags Die Set with the new Petite Hearts Stencil that was just revealed yesterday.

To make the card, I stamped the images from the Orchids Stamp Set on some Bristol Smooth White Card Stock with VersaMark ink. I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool. I colored the images in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and used the coordinating die to cut them out.

Next, I die-cut the scallop using the scallop die from the Frames and Tags Die Set on some Bristol smooth white card stock. I inked up this panel with some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink for some subtle color.

I sprayed some Pixie Spray on the Petite Hearts Stencil to temporarily adhere the same on the background panel. This will prevent it from slipping while I’m adding the embossing paste for more texture and interest. I set this panel aside to dry for about half an hour, and then adhered on a top-folding notecard.

I added a few droplets of some gold watercolor paint using my paintbrush, then adhered the focal images on the card with liquid glue for stability. I finished the design by adding the sentiment that was die-cut using the tag from the Frames & Tags Die set that was heat-embossed with my heating tool!
