I rarely design a single layer card with a single stamp set, but that’s what developed when “casing” Emma Goddard’s beautiful, sunflower card.

Highlighted today is the Prized Peony Stamp Set, and there’s a photo below that shows the shine from the gold, heat embossed, peony.

Golden Peony



This fold is in a different direction than I normally make. Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 11″ X 4 1/4″, fold in the middle at 5 1/2″ to make your card base. Fun for a change, huh?

Cut regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock to 5 1/4″ X 4″. Using a Water Painter, dip your brush into Pear Pizzazz Ink, and swipe it across the middle of this layer several times. You may want to absorb excess water with a tissue, and let it dry for a bit.

Stamp three leaves in Pear Pizzazz Ink, stamping in the corner, without re-inking, to get the three shades. There’s also a fun texture stamp to add to the design.



Stamp the flower in VersaMark on the left side. I know it’s hard not to stamp the complete flower, but do it anyway. You’ll like the end results.

Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder, and set with the Heat Tool.

Stamp the sentiment in Crumb Cake Ink. This color looks like gold, to coordinate with the flower.



The last step, if you like, is to emboss it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. It was an experiment, because I wasn’t sure what would happen to the gold embossing, but it turned out okay. Yay!

Now, can you see the shine?
