I don’t know what took me so long to use the Merriest Moments Bundle but I am so glad I finally did. I think it is now one of my favorites in the 2021 July-December Mini Catalog. The fun thing about this bundle is there are three parts to it. There is the stamp set called Merriest Moments. There is the coordinating products called Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder. This includes a set of sixteen dies AND an amazing embossing folder that embosses and cuts at the same time! Now to be honest, you can cut and embossing at the same time but I found it easier to do it separately and it works perfectly.
On this particular card I only used the embossing folder for the background but I will show you a card on Friday that used the cutting and embossing part. In the meantime, just look at that embosses background. Isn’t it gorgeous!?! It also includes a die that cuts out the rectangle in the middle which fits perfecting inside the frame.
To make this card, I first embossed the background using Basic White card stock. I layered that on top of a Fresh Freesia card base. Then I stamped two of the poinsettia flowers in Fresh Freesia ink and one I stamped off on a piece of scrap paper before stamping on card stock. This made it a little lighter than the other flowers. I cut them out and then layered them all on top of one another and curled the edges a bit. I stamped the branches in Soft Succulent ink and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I stamped the sentiment in Fresh Freesia ink and cut that out using the stitched rectangle that is part of the die set.
Come back on Friday and I will show you a card where I cut the embossing folder and dies to make the background.
