I have a couple of cards for you. I have been madly dashing around trying to get caught up with Birthday cards and other obligations that I almost missed during the time my family was visiting. It is sooooo much fun playing with grandkids and taking time out from the usual stuff....but then you have to race like crazy getting back on track....I'm not complaining....just saying :o)
The background paper is a vellum print by Anna Griffin.
To embellish, I used lace and a deep burgundy ribbon. The lace flower is leftover lace I have had since my daughter's wedding, 18 years ago. The flourishes are Tim Holtz grungeboard.
Next, finding this strip of chipboard stamps that had been in my stash for ages was the perfect touch for this traveling theme.
The flourishes are Quik-Kutz embossed first with clear and then with Kaleidescope embossing powders. I love this technique because it gives great depth to the embellishment AND the kaleidescope leaves a multi colored glittery top that changes colors and shimmers as the card is moved.
The flower is made from coffee filters. If you would like directions, please email me and I'll be glad to write you back.
Soooo, thanks for visiting.
Hope you enjoy,
