Sincere Thanks

23 Apr

After my last “cheeky” post, I thought a little sincerity was in order, especially since this card honors mom. (Mother’s Day is May 9th.)

I had some fun with this card by creating some patterned vellum and using sewing to put the whole thing together. Here are the full instructions:

  1. Using gutter guard, air brush system and dark pink Copic Marker, air brush over holes to create a pattern on vellum. (Here is a piece of gutter guard that I have used with a variety of colors.)
  2. Stamp Floral Garden onto vellum, using dye ink and impressing onto the “non-airbrushed” side. Be careful not to let the stamp slide on the vellum. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder. {Even though it is dye ink, it will stay wet longer on the vellum.} Tap off excess and heat set.
  3. Using more Copic markers, color in the flowers and butterflies. Tear edges of vellum.
  4. Trim a dark pink paper to fit card front.
  5. Trim pink patterned paper to fit the dark pink and stamp “Thanks Mom” as shown.
  6. Layer the elements and punch around the outside. {a little temporary adhesive helps the pieces not shift}
  7. Sew horizontally around sentiment and at top and bottom of vellum.

One last look. A close-up…
