Happy Wednesday! We are half way through the week, YAY!! This weekend I will be hosting a Virtual Party for beginning stampers. Visit Let It Snow Stamping on Facebook for more details.
Today’s project incorporates vellum to give it a softer look. Before placing the vellum on the card I ran it through the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder for added texture. The card base is Pear Pizzazz and I stamped it with the filler leaf stamp using the Pear Pizzazz Classic Stampin’ Pad.
The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive on Basic White then glued onto a Pear Pizzazz frame that I punched out using the Double Oval Punch from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. This is quickly becoming my new favorite punch! I no longer need to have two punches to make one sentiment piece.
For the leaves, I stamped them in Old Olive and for the filler I used Soft Sea Foam which gives it just a hint of color without being too overbearing. Using white twine, I wrapped the rectangle four times and taped it down in the back to hide the ends of the twine. Then using a bit of gold cord, I made a simple bow tied to the white twine. Let’s not forget my favorite Clear Gems! I used the Fine Tip Glue to glue them down as it always give just a little drop that hold my gems on tight.
Tip of the Day
Many stampers find it difficult to glue down vellum because the adhesive shows through. What I have always done is hide the glue under an embellishment! In this case, I glued down my rectangle, using Foam Adhesive Strips, onto the vellum. Once that was glued, I added adhesive to the back of the vellum to glue it down to the card base. The vellum is loose around the edges, because it is glued down in the center under the rectangle. You can also add a bit of adhesive under the sentiment, though I did not, because I felt it was secured enough in the center.
If you think you might need clearer directions, please comment below and I will be more than happy to explain it in more detail. I am here to help you make your best cards. Cards that you can be proud of!
