Just a quick post of two of the cards my gals will be making in the March 1st Wed. of the month club. I keep changing my mind, so now I have about 6 other cards kitted up! Oh well, I still have time and may change my mind again before the class.
The first card is a favorite black-and-white combo and the second is a masculine card; both cards use vellum.
The white card base is layered with basic black cs (I stamped and punched one black blossom from the center before gluing to the base). I then topped the black cs with a piece of Mocha Morning SDSP (covering the space from the punched bloom). I stamped three more blooms from the Mixed Bunch on vellum in whisper white and heat embossed in white embossing powder. Then I punch all four blooms with the new Blossom punch.
I snipped down the petals of each bloom to give them a fluffy feel. I stamped the sentiment from Lovely Thoughts in same white ink and white embossing powder, then flagged the end. I attached the sentiment and three blooms with glue dots.
A peek at the inside with a scrap of SDSP and the final bloom from Mixed Bunch.
The second card is a masculine card in neutrals using the Nature's Nest set.
The images from Nature's Nest were stamped on vellum in brown Stazon ink, as well as the sentiment from Curly Cute. Then I flipped the vellum over and used a dauber and inks to color in the back side of the images. I also tried to make some sand by rubbing the dauber around the images with crumb cake ink.
I attached the vellum to card front with two sided tape and didn't worry about the show through because I covered this with a piece of twill tape. I also threaded a tan button and added to one end of the twill tape with a glue dot.
Here's a peek at the inside of the second card.
Just pretend you don't notice I stamped the sentiment crooked! Ok?
