This card was made for the CC challenge this week. Over the past week designers have been sharing tips and techniques. We were to chose one of these techniques. I decided to go with embossing vellum which I had never tried. Suzanne Sergi made a beautiful vellum flower cone tree. I used DCWV Linen and Lace Paper, Recollections vellum from Michaels, ribbon, lace and pearls. The stamp is also from $1 section in Michaels. I cut scallopped circles with Mother's Day Bouquet of both scrap cardstock and vellum at 2 1/2, 2, 1 1/2, and 1". I then misted lightly with Glimmer Mist and crumpled carefully to form my flowers. I love using the vellum as it makes the flowers seem lighter and the embossing really helps them stand up and hold a shape.
Don' t you love the soft colors?
I am also entering this in the My Craft Spot challenge this week which was to use embossing.
While I had the Linen and Lace stack out I made 2 wedding cards I needed. I cut two different hearts from Damask Decor. With these cuts and the beautiful paper design I didn't do anymore as one of the cards has to be mailed overseas.
