Corner Bouquet & the Fine Art Floral DSP

Ready for the Festive Friday Challenge #FF0077?  The Festive Friday Challenge picks a festivity and uses that festivity to create an Inspo List.  International Polar Bear Day is  on February 27 and it is the inspiration behind the Inspo List.  Your project doesn't have to feature a polar bear (but it can) but it does have to have 3 elements from the Inspo list.

I chose to use blue, vellum, acetate, and heat embossing for my project. 

CornerBouquet-FF0077

Th card base is Vellum Cardstock and heat embossed using the Corner Bouquet stamp set and white embossing powder.  I do not use vellum as much as I used to and it was great to be reminded how pretty white embossing looks on vellum.  On the front I layered a design from the Golden Garden Specialty Acetate over a coordinating piece of Fine Art Floral DSP.   I used small dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue behind the gold foil designs on the acetate to attach it to the paper.  I did this to try and hide the adhesive.  The acetate and DSP are layered on a piece of Pool Party CS.  The Pool Party Sheer Ribbon is so pretty and also helps to secure the acetate to the DSP.

Since the card base is vellum I had to line the inside front of the card to hide the adhesive from the front of the card from showing.   I also added a panel to the inside of the card so I could write a message.  I also lined the back of the card to hide the adhesive.  This makes the card quite substantial even though it is vellum, so it is not as delicate as it appears.

Beautiful card Sharon, I use vellum now and then but have never thought of using it for the card base!

Stunning, Sharon! I love the heat embossed vellum...so clever! The bow looks so pretty with this paper. Layering the acetate over this beautiful print adds so much.

Beautiful card as always Sharon!

This is just gorgeous, Sharon. I love the embossed vellum, and that DSP is so beautiful. A wonderful composition, as always.
