A few weeks ago I saw a card on Selma's Stamping Corner that I just knew I had to try to case. She truly has so many beautiful cards on her blog. You'll have to check her out. The flowers and leaves on this card are made of colored vellum.
The white punched area is made with a Martha Stewart punch, punching it twice and then cutting off the plain edge and then overlapping them to get the scallop on each side. The flowers are made with the Hydrangea punch (large flower) and the Hydrangea punch with medium and small flower on it as well as the MS Rose Leaf punch.
The stamped flower is from the Flourishes Violets set. I colored it with markers but was disappointed that they didn't match the color of the vellum as well as I would have liked. The flowers could also be made from plain vellum and then colored with the same markers that you use on the design. I could also have stamped a sentiment on the oval instead of another design which would have eliminated the difference in color.
It's the end of another month. Where has the year gone?
Thanks for stopping by............come back again soon.
