Friendship Flowers on Vellum

E. Marie here to share a card using the new Friendship Flowers Stamp Set.  The main image on this set is a nice size that makes the flowers easy to color and makes a great central image.

For the card front, I die cut Sue Wilson Designs’ Spanish Collection Background from white cardstock and layered this on a slightly larger piece of sticker paper. 

I added Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter to the remaining exposed adhesive, tied a sheer bow around the bottom, and added a pearl brad to the bow and tiny pearls all around the edge.  This was layered on a white card base.

One of my favorite looks is white embossing on vellum and I knew this image would look be perfect for this.  I stamped it with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder on a piece of vellum and colored with Tombow markers on the back.  After die cutting two of Spellbinders’ largest Floral Ovals, I cut the center out of one of them and layered it over the vellum image.  I cut around the pour spout so it would layer in front of the die cut.  Next I trimmed off the decorative edge of the second die, covered it with a wide piece of lace, and adhered a second lace around the edges.  The image was adhered on top of this so the lace could show through the vellum and also under the decorative edge of the die cut to enhance it.

Check out this stamp set in the on line store here.

Thanks for visiting.
