Here are my two takes on it.
For this card I used Post-It notes to mask off an area of the card and heat embossed the remaining space with a Darkroom Door background stamp (DDBS006 Harlequin) in clear. I then used an embossing pen to loosely cover the clear embossing, and heat embossed again in white. I like the slight shadow effect this double embossing gives. I stamped and heat embossed and die cut a flower and stem from the My Favorite Things Funky Flowers set, and used foam pads to raise the flower and trap a twist of 0.4 mm jewellery wire underneath it. The stem was glued flat to the card. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant Labeled Messages and was stamped in VersaColor ink in Charcoal, then cut out by hand and raised on foam pads.
This card has a galaxy background done in Distress Inks in Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord, Salty Ocean and Black Soot. I then stamped and heat embossed a Hero Arts background stamp (CG616 Tiny Star Background) in silver. On a separate sheet of card, I printed a computer generated sentiment in a cool font called Always Here and cut the sheet down to the size I needed for my panel. The panel and galaxy background were die cut to fit each other using My Favorite Things Inside and Out Stitched Circle Stax, and then adhered to the card base.
