Today's card is one I have been thinking about for awhile and today it finally got made. It isn't exactly what I had in mind but I do like how it turned out.
It may look like I used Basic Gray CS but it is Vellum CS and the Corner Bouquet stamp (Sale-A-Bration) heat embossed in white embossing powder and layered over Basic Black CS. Originally I thought I would layer the Vellum CS over Basic White CS but the image didn't stand out enough. The beautiful sentiment is from the Heal Your Heart stamp set (Sale-A-Bration). The butterflies were stamped using the Butterfly Gala stamp set on Vellum and heat embossed using white embossing powder. Both the small and large butterflies were punched out using the Butterfly Duet punch.
One of the problems of working with vellum is how do you prevent the adhesive from showing. On this card I used glue dots behind the white embossed images to secure the vellum to the Basic Black CS. I also used glue dots behind the butterflies to secure the vellum to the Basic Black CS. This is the best way to hide the adhesive. I have yet to find an adhesive that is perfect.
Just a few more days to snag your Sale-A-Bration choices. If you have been wanting to order, it is a great time to do so especially if your order is $50 or more. Free product is always a good thing.
Thank you for stopping by!
