Flower Focal Points with Embossed Backgrounds + Altenew Hop

When you spend a ton of time coloring something beautiful, chances are you want to make sure the beauty has a chance to take center stage on your project. I colored two new stamp sets from Altenew and loved how they turned out! To make sure the coloring could shine, I used a simple embossing technique using 3D embossing folders from Simon Says Stamp to create the perfect backdrop!

For the lily card, I used the Altenew Enjoy Life stamp set, paired with the Simon Says Stamp Leaf Bundle embossing folder.

The wreath of flowers came from the Altenew Sentimental Florals stamp set, which looks amazing on top of the Blossom Field embossing folder from Simon Says Stamp.
