Today I stepped out of my comfort zone in crafting and tried something new and do I ever love the end result! The best advice I got from the Create a Smile’s DT about creating with flowers and shapes were to heat emboss and use vellum. I chose both for this elegant card!
I used some of the new September release along with some older products:
- Mesmerizing Mandalas stamp set
- Floral Decorations stamp set
- All About You stamp set
- Useful Banners cool cuts
- thanks twice cool cuts
I started my card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which fits perfectly into the size 9A envelopes.
For the background, I first heat embossed the mandalas in white and inked with aged mahogany, victorian velvet & tattered rose leaving a little white in the center for the sentiments.
I adhered the background in the corner for a different angle on the card base.
Next, I heat embossed the floral decorations in gold on vellum and trimmed around them and added them loosely with glue dots.
For the final touches I added different sized pearls.
I may have to try some more of these style cards, I loved the results and I loved that this card came together in less than 2 hours! That is a fast card for me!
