Mother’s Day Card with Emboss Resist Background

Create a Mother's Day Card with Emboss Resist Background Technique

Mother's day is right around the corner and for once, I am ahead of schedule and have my card already made.  I decided to use the emboss resist technique on this card and color in the beautiful flowers with some Copic markers.

Be sure to scroll down for some information on my new online craft academy.  I'm super excited to share it with you and to give you a special promotion to join our next LIVE Virtual Class highlighting foiling techniques.

My Card Details

For my card I used an embossed resist background technique.

{Full Disclosure:  when I created this card, I used Gina K Designs Blue Lagoon card stock, but at the time of this posting, that color was discontinued, so you will see a teal alternate in the supply list}

I used Gina K Design (GKD) Blue Lagoon Cardstock as my card front.  I stamped the background image, PinkFresh Studio Enchanted Blooms with Versamark and Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder.  

Once the card front was heat set, then I used some distressed oxide inks to shade the card.  The colors I used from the outside to the inside were:

 With lighter color in the middle, it gives it a vignette look and creates a focal point.

Next I stamped the Blooming Bouquet image with Memento Black Ink and colored it with Copic Markers.

Here are the colors I used for each section of the image.

  • Large blooms (Blue Green) ~BG 18, BG 13, BG11
  • Daffodils (Yellow)~Y15, Y06, Y02, E13
  • Small Buds (Coral)~R24, R14, R11
  • Large Leaves~YG67, YG17, YG06
  • Small Leaves~YG03, YG01
  • Color in the white space~BG02

Then I heat embossed with the Hero Arts White embossing powder the Happy Mother's Day sentiment on black cardstock and diecut it with a circle die.  I cut a 2nd circle slightly larger with the GKD Blue Lagoon cardstock and blended some of the distressed ink to match the card front.  Then glued the 2 circles together with's Sticky Squares.

I popped both the bouquet of flowers and the sentiment up with's Small Double Sided Rounds. I really like these new double sided foam products that SBC just came out with.  The foam is pretty dense and doesn't move around once it is adhered.
