Well, Summer has arrived but thank goodness it hasn’t been horribly hot here. It was actually pretty nice this weekend.
Sparkle N Sprinkle just released a new set called Swirls and I am absolutely in love with it. One of my favorite techniques is white embossing on vellum and these delicate images are perfect for this so that is the first thing I did with it.
I used the largest flower image and heat embossed it with White Detail EP on heavier vellum. I used a perforating tool and punched it out instead of cutting it out with a scissors. This leaves a lacy looking edge. I sponged the back with pink ink and layered it on a white Designer Doily die cut from Marianne Designs Creatables and white and pink die cut squares using LifeSyle’s Nesting Square Dies and Nesting Doily Square Dies.
I used Couture Creations Exotic Embossing Folder on the top layer of the card base and sponged it lightly with pink ink. The only embellishment is some pink seam binding ribbon with a bow.

Have a wonderful week!!
