Morning everyone, no time for crafting yesterday. I spent a lazy Sunday watching Harry Potter on tele, reading a few things and time with the family. So this card I made back in August 2008 but I think it is good enough to share now. I made this for a card swap over at Craftmad and the theme was to use 'Vellum'. I haven't used a lot of vellum so this was a challenge for me. I never know quite how to attach the vellum. For this card I used:
SU card - Always Artichoke for the base card
SU card - Rose Red for the embossed strip
I embossed using Cuttlebug Folder - Bloom and then I brushed Glimmer Chalk (Craft-T) over the embossing.
Then stamped the vellum with the butterflies from SU Priceless using white ink and then embossed. Stamped the butterfly image again with Rose Red ink on to some white board and mounted them with 3d tape on top of the embossed butteflies. Added maroon ribbon to each side and attached the vellum with three eyelets.
