All About Layering 3 - Project #6...

Hi! This is my final card for the Altenew Academy's All About Layering 3 class. I thoroughly enjoyed the great techniques taught by Lydia Evans. And I am very happy that I completed my homework for all 6 classes. Today's card is based on Day 4 of the class. One of the bonus inspiration cards had the sentiment die embossed on the card. I loved the idea and decided to give it a try.

I stamped the flower from the Cross Stitch Flower set by Altenew in the upper left corner of panel of white cardstock. I embossed the Simple Hello sentiment die with the help of the embossing pads. Recently Jennifer Macguire did a post where she enhanced the embossed areas with inking or stamping. Here is her original post. I loved the idea and created a mask out of plain printer paper and sponged two shades of Coffee Break inks over the sentiment. Here is a closer look.

To finish, I stamped a tiny heart over the sentiment and mounted the panel on a green card base with foam tape. Here is another look at the card.

I hope you liked my card. The All About You 1, 2, and 3 classes are currently free at Altenew Academy. I would highly recommend them for anyone who loves multistep stamps and wants to improve their work.
