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! :-)
