Instructions

Hello my friends! Today, I want to share an easy card using the Bold Bouquet stamp from Simon Hurley’s latest release. I was able to use two of my favorite techniques on this card: heat embossing and ink blending. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and that it gives you some inspiration to do something creative and fun today. 

 

Simon Hurley create. Bold Bouquet Card Step 1

Step 1: Create an A2 card base out of Stark White Cardstock. Cut the 8½” x 11” cardstock down to 4¼” x 11.” Then score at 5½. Cut another piece measuring 4” x 5¼” to be your front panel.
