Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop

It's Papertrey Ink's January Blog hop! The theme is black backgrounds...





This card was very technical, it uses INLAY and  CLEAR EMBOSSING ON DRY EMBOSSING TECHNIQUES. Here is how I did it, hope I explain this right.
  1. die cut the word lucky out of a black card stock base, save the black pieces that go into the loops of the words (in the letter l, k, and y)
  2. cut an identical piece of black cardstock that is the same size as the front of the card and apply a lot tape in the area where the lucky is going to be and along the edges of the card
  3. glue this piece to the back side of the front flap of the card base
  4. die cut the word lucky in hot pink card stock
  5. inlay the pink lucky word die into the top of card
  6. apply the black pieces for the loops of the letter l, k, and y
  7. stamp the sentiment in versamark and white emboss 
  8. dry emboss the roses
  9. rub on pink versamark ink on the raised parts of the rose
  10. clear emboss the rose
  11. cut out rose leaving a small edge border
  12. pop up in bottom corner of card using foam tape
TIP: I HIGHLY recommend an emboss buddy on this card!!
