Hello crafty friends! It’s another Saturday and therefore time for my weekly Make The Day Special Stamp Store blog post. Today I’m going to play with to stamp set by Avery Elle. I also had this idea that I wanted to make a card were not everything is visible at once, so I opted to do some vellum magic today.
As you can see, it doesn’t look like much when you look at it for the first time. I heat embossed the sentiment on the vellum with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I also added a few gems just for some dimension and sparkle.
In order to attach the vellum to the card, I cut a slit right into the fold at the very top of the card. On the inside of the card, the vellum reaches about 1 inch in. I cut a piece of card stock that is about 4 1/4 inches wide and 2 inches high and scored it down the middle. I then adhered it into the card at the very top. Not only does that hide the vellum, it also gives the entire card more stability since I almost cut it apart at the top 🙂
And just in case you’re wondering where the friends are, there they are 🙂 I stamped the images on some scrap pieces of Copic friendly card stock and colored them with my Copic markers. Thanks to the matching dies, I was able to quickly cut the critters and then mount them with foam dots onto my card base. I used very thin foam dots so the layers wouldn’t stack up too much.
I used some light gold embossing powder to emboss stars onto the card and then used a dauber and a light blue distress ink to create a very light halo around each star. I intentionally did not cover the entire sky blue because I wanted the card to remain as light and clean as possible.
I’m sending this card off the Addicted to CAS #64 “Animal” challenge.
Hope you enjoyed the card. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon with a video. Cheers!
