Silver Embossing On Vellum with Build-A-Flower: Sakura Blossom

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi, Altenew friends!

Svitlana is here. Today, I want to share a cool (temperature wise, at least) card using the lovely Build-A-Flower: Sakura Blossom. I think, for many, the sakura blossom is one of the symbols of spring. I feel the same way. However, I'm more of a winter person and I like making flowers with a cool or frozen look.

I started with die-cutting of several flowers and leaves out of the Vellum Translucent Paper. In this design, it's important to start from die-cutting. I didn't use the very bottom layers of the elements and, without them, it could be tricky to stamp just the middle or top layers and then properly die-cut them. So, I started with die-cutting the die-cuts as a guide or as the bottom layers, if you will.

Next, using the Antique Silver Embossing Powder, I embossed the very top layers of the flowers and the top layers of the leaves. Along with embossing and die-cutting one stamen element, I also dipped the tips of the flower petals into embossing ink and silver embossed them as well.

I cut a panel out of the Pale Gray Cardstock and adhered all the elements to it, forming a floral cluster. And then I silver embossed the sentiment below.

The panel was foam mounted onto a card base made out of the Solar White Cardstock.

I finished off the card by adding several silver confetti.

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!

Hi there. I really love your beautiful, understated card. It is sooooo elegant! Thanks for sharing. I often forget that not everything has to be brightly coloured or even pastel coloured. This card resonated with me, and of course I love the blossom die.

Svitlana, this is an out-standing card. I absolutely love the colours I would never have thought to have put the grey and silver with the vellum but it works.
Will be trying this combo in the future though. Thank you :O)

I really am attracted to the simplicity of this card as it is just so beautiful the way it is. No need for glitter or drops or color, it is lovely. Very fresh from all the doodads and glitz we’ve seen so much lately!
