This week has been a bit crazy for me, my daughter got the stomach flu and now she is having a really bad cough/cold. Poor thing she is feeling miserable, that means mommy doesn't have much time to create, happily I made a pretty card for you today and I hope you like t.

Here's what I came up with today.

  • Make card base from White Cardstock. A2 size.
  • Cut a panel from White Cardstock (3.75" x 5"). Ink all edges and emboss piece with Seeing Spots folder. Add Light Pink Lace Tape and pearls. 
  • Adhere piece to card.
  • Die-cut and emboss a piece of White Cardstock using Fleur de Lis Shapeabilities Pendants. Ink all edges. Stamp sentiment in Vinatge Photo. Adhere it to card with foam tape.
  • Stamp flowers on translucent Cardstock in Versamark Ink. Add White embossing powder and heat it up. Color flowers with Watercolor Brush and Distress Inks. Cut them out and adhere them to card with glue dots. Add StarDust Stickles to center of flowers.

ETA: Also check out this fantastic news :)
ETAA: Some of you have sent me e-mails about the translucent cardstock, I got it at my LSS, and it's very similar to vellum just a little bit thicker. But if you don't find it, vellum will work just fine! Thanks for your questions!!
