I needed a birthday card to take with me when I go on holidays
and I thought of Seize the Birthday so went over to see
what their Toppings were
and was happy to see Vellum or Acetate
I thought for a change I would try Acetate and while
I was searching in my stash I came across a heap
of patterned vellum that I have had for an age.
Found the perfect one as the Young Lady that
my card is for loves Orchids.
It doesn't look like vellum does it?
I started with my coloured card base
and then topped in with metallic gold
and cut and scored with
Stampin' Up Textured Impression
The vellum is called Orchid Translucent
Added some lace from my stash which is
lightly coloured with Memento Pistachio
I then went about making my flower and
ferns using a variety of dies from
Marianne Designs -
CR1204 - LR 1902 - LR0229 - LR 1057
My sentiment is from GKD Fanciful Tags
(a favourite of mine as I love the font)
embossed in Gold
Finishing with some pearls.
I am glad I don't have to post this one
as the flower would get a little squashed.
Thanks for dropping in
