Oceans of Love Crab on Kraft

I keep coming back to this technique; white embossing on kraft card.  I couldn't resist using the sea shell stamps which come with this set to create a frame for the crab.
Cut a 5” x 5” kraft card blank in half. Stamp the crab and the ‘Sending oceans of love’ sentiment from the Cherry Green’s stamp set onto one half in Versamark ink and heat emboss with detail white powder.
 Using a stamp platform for precision and stamping directly onto the front of a 7” x 7” kraft card blank, add the longest shell into a corner in Versamark ink, heat embossing in white powder. Turn the card 90 degrees and repeat. Continue until all four corners are complete.
Repeat the process, this time adding the larger shell next to the first.
Continue in the same manner with the smallest shell.
To complete the frame use the longest shell again.
Die cut the crab image using the 4.5” nested square die. Create a mat from Clarity stencil card using the 4.75” nested square picot die and mat the two together.
To finish, add the crab topper to the front of the card in the middle of the shell frame.

I love this stamp set and the clean but very sharp finish you have achieved. I agree, white embossing on kraft card is a great look. xx
