Handmade card #3 Flowers and Thank you
And last but not least, included in the series ”Creative card ideas using vellum”, for this example I’ve used a bold decorative card stock, vellum (this time vertical positioned) and a die cut a flower with 5 layers as a focal point. Finally, decided to heat emboss the word ”Thanks” below the flower.
How to make this card (30′ approx)
First I started using a white card stock A4 from Hobbycraft and turn it in to an A5 card using my Martha Stewart scoring board 12”x 12” and bone folder to score a line.
I used my Cathedral Products paper trimmer to cut one piece of light green card stock, in this case I used the green one from the HobbyCraft Soda Pop Premium card A4 50 pack trimmed it to a 20x13cm rectangle and a second piece of a bold color card stock 19x12cm from the TheWorks Rustic Nature 12”x12” Design pad (currently out of stock online) and stuck this two pieces together to the white card stock with double-sided tape.
As a focal point of this card I used Cricut Vellum. As a sentiment I used the word ”Thanks” from the Hampton Art Roses Clear Stamps 17 Pieces set and stamped it with my Tim Holts & Tonic Studios stamp positioning platform to heat emboss it later on to the vertical vellum piece twice ( you definitely don’t have to do it twice but I find this gives much more volume to the final result).
As a final touch, I die cut a flower from the Crafters Companion ”Signature Collection: decorative metal dies Grand floral set” by Sara Davies and stuck them together to form the final flower you see in the pictures above. (links to products and tools below)
