New baby girl congratulations card | Using small images

Hello everyone and welcome back! Athena here today to share a quick and simple yet sweet card to make for a newborn baby girl. For my card I used only one stamp image (the cute bow) from the Waffle Flower Popping In stamp set.

So let's jump right into the details. I started by cutting a piece of white card stock slightly smaller than a standard A2 card. Then I got my score board and scored a few lines from top to bottom to add some interest. I really liked the look of this dry embossing technique  and I'm surely going to use it again!
I masked off a line near the bottom where I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set. In the same area I blended some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide. Sprinkled a few droplets of water with my fingers, let it oxidize for a couple of seconds and dumped with a dry paper towel before I removed the masking tape.

I continued by adding a few splotches of the same Worn Lipstick diluted with water (I used a water brush for that).
To color my image I used the Worn Lipstick Distress Marker and my Wink of Stella clear pen used as a water brush. My bow is really glittery and shiny, not easy to capture in day light, but so pretty in real life! I used the matching dies to cut the image and foam squares to attach it onto the blended area.
The whole panel was then foam mounted onto a standard A2 gray card base. As a final touch, I adhered a few sequins here and there and stamped one of the other images included in the set on a piece of white card stock adhered on the inside of my card. I used the same Distress Oxide for my stamping here.

I hope I've inspired you to use the dry embossing technique (it really adds a lot to an otherwise plain background) and give your small images a chance. There are so many of them in every single stamp set!
Have a great week and I'll see you soon!
