Make It Mondays: Week of 2/14


Yay, I actually made a card for PTI's new Make It Monday Challenge! I needed a card for a friend who had surgery this week, and I thought it would be the perfect one to use this week's element on: a vellum sentiment strip. I have tons of vellum in my stash from when I was scrapbooking regularly since I liked to journal on vellum almost exclusively. Well, since I fell in love with making cards, I haven't been scrapbooking too often, ahem, and so I was excited to play with it again for this challenge!

First I colored PTI's Year of Flowers: Gladiolus in purples and then I paired the cut out image with Plum Pudding cardstock and patterned paper from Guidelines. I punched the vellum strip with a border punch on both long edges, and then stamped the "Happy Healing" sentiment on it and placed it partly behind the flowers. I added some pearls to the strip and Perfect Pearls to the centers of the gladiolus flowers and rounded two corners of the card. To finish, I inked the edges with Chai from the Tea Dye duo. Ta da! :-)

Supplies:
Stamps: PTI--YOF: Gladiolus & Healing Touch Sentiments
Paper: PTI--Plum Pudding & Guidelines; vellum--stash
Ink: Versafine--Onyx Black; PTI--Chai
Misc.: Border Punch--Martha Stewart; Embossing Powder--Ultra Fine Detail--Clear; Pearls--Recollections; Perfect Pearls--Opal White; Copics--Darn it, I put them away before I wrote down the colors--so sorry!

Jill, this is gorgeous! Jaw hitting the ground goegeous! Your coloring is fantastic, the punched edge of the vellum is so delicate, and your pairing the image with that patterned paper is sheer perfection! So, I guess I kinda like it. ;)
