Flower Vase

I saw THIS card over on Maxine's blog and just knew I had to give this technique a try. Cutting out a panel to save it from embossing is much easier than a way I tried years ago which involved creating some mask out of cardboard and wasn't very effective. This is way effective and rather cool to boot.
So a big shout out to Maxine for sharing it with us. Truly if you haven't followed that link you really should to see what it looks like white on white.

The Fine Print: Stamp by Hero Arts, embossing folder by Stampin' Up, and Stitched Rectangles by L'il Inkers.

Great take on Maxine's inspiration card (which I had missed, so tfs the link...loved hers also. Must try this). Looks terrific with the pretty vase of flowers. Isn't it wonderful to have good bloggy crafty pals to inspire us?! TFS

This sure beats that chipboard technique where the chipboard would move and give you a wonky space! This sweet flower is so pretty framed with the embossed green!
