Here For You - Neutral Floral Background

Good morning! Dropping by this morning with ANOTHER card using the gorgeous new Simon Says Stamp Release that went live several hours ago and features more love and Valentine theme stamps and dies - appropriately named LOVE! Today's card features a GORGEOUS new background stamp, as well as a BEAUTIFUL new word die!

I started off by creating the background. I stamped the new Cosmos Background Stamp on some Smoke Cardstock using my MISTI for a nice clear impression, then heat embossed with Nuvo Shimmering Pearl embossing powder. I was originally going to color in a bit with colored pencils, but fell in love with the way it looked as is and didn't want to ruin that!

Next, I die cut the new Here For You word die 3 times from Black cardstock, and layered them together for a thicker, more dimensional sentiment. I used the same glue pen to attach it to my card, then heat embossed some more sentiments from the previously released stamp set You Got This on thin strips of Black Cardstock.

I finished off by using a bit of Hickory Smoke distress ink to blend around the outside - which works beautifully since the embossing resists the ink keeping the image sharp and perfect! I mounted that panel on a white cardbase, and finished off with a few white enamel dots. Check out the dimension on that sentiment just by cutting it out of the cardstock 3 times and layering it up:
