For today’s card I took a shot at creating a “floating” card using the Glad Press & Seal technique.
To start, the flower from the Forever Blossoms stamp set is inked with Versamark and stamped on Shimmery White Cardstock several times and then embossed with Gold Embossing Powder with the Heat Tool.
Blushing Bride and Granny Apple Green Ink Refills along with an AquaPainter are used to watercolor the flowers. The flowers are run through the die cut machine and then added to a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of scrap Cardstock without using adhesive. Be sure to cover the entire piece of Cardstock – cutting the flowers down where necessary to fill the gaps.
Glad Press & Seal is gently placed on top of the flowers being careful not to move the flowers. Then seal the flowers by pressing on top of the Press & Seal. Turn it over and trim down the edges. Gently peel back the Cardstock.
I used a Rectangle Stitched Die (however, you can use any shape you prefer) and ran it through the die cut machine leaving a rectangle in the center and a rectangle with the flowers on it to be used for the second card. Use a smaller rectangle and stamp a sentiment to be placed in the center of the larger floral piece.
Take your Dimensionals and fill the back of the floral images with them (be generous). Peel back the Dimensionals and take your Shimmery White card base and lay it evenly over the Dimensionals. Flip it over and peel back the Press & Seal. Place the sentiment in the center with Dimensionals and add some Pearls in the open spaces.
And there you have it, a card that looks like the flowers are “floating”
