Splitting a Sentiment to fit Round an Image

I used a favourite technique of mine, white embossing on kraft card, to create this smaller card.  The sentiment wouldn't fit, so I used masking and stamping to add it to the card round the image.
Stamp Tina's flower spray (from Claritystamp) in Versamark ink on the front of a 5” x 5” kraft card blank and heat emboss with detail white embossing powder.
Mask off part of the ‘However you spend it’ sentiment from the Special Day sentiments set, ink it up in Versamark ink, remove the masking and stamp the first two lines at the top of the card. Heat emboss in white.
Add the middle line of the sentiment in the same way over on the right hand side of the card.
Finish the sentiment by stamping and heat embossing the last two lines to fit with the spray below the third line.
To finish off the card, add Peeled Paint Oxide to the large leaves and Festive Berries Oxide to the flowers using a Pergamano blending pen and separate nibs for each colour. Buff the colour off the embossing with a paper towel.
