Faux Cloisonne Technique: Fifth Avenue Floral Greeting Card

A few posts back I showed you a card I made using the Faux Cloisonne Technique.  Today's card was also made using this technique.

 This is a very different color scheme for me.  Okay...not the lavendar since it's left over from my sister's wedding invitations, but the Going Gray combined with it is new for me. 
 I used Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set and stamped  it onto a magazine image and then heat embossed it in silver embossing powder and cut it out.
 I used an embossing folder on the lavendar layer of paper.  The ribbon is Going Gray taffeta ribbon from Stampin Up!
 I mounted the flower onto a paper doily and then adhered it to my card.
Thanks for looking!  Happy Stamping!


  1. Very pretty! I am going to have to check out how to do this technique.

  2. Very pretty card. The lavender and gray are a perfect combination. I am going to have to check out that technique.

  3. Very nice simple and pretty card! I've always liked the look of a light gray with pale colors
