Painted Blooms Thank You

I just love this Stampin Up Painted Blooms DSP.  I just received my order with the Lost Lagoon card stock so I was ready to cut a sheet - it was hard though. I wanted a large thank you across the bottom so I selected a digital one from the Eventful Year collection and changed the colors to match this paper. I printed it on vellum and embossed it. I printed again from Eventful Year some polka dot paper which I changed to Lost Lagoon onto my card front.  I cut my DSP at 3 by 5.5 inches.  I adhered it off centre to the right.  The greeting was getting lost in the stems so I placed a strip of white card stock behind the vellum in order to have the greeting highlighted.  I adhered the vellum to card stock with vellum adhesive then adhered that to the card front.

  1. That's one beautiful paper. Yes, it's hard to cut into them. I used to save my favorites for last, but I've changed strategy. Better to use them before they lose their glory.
    I didn't know vellum glue existed, that's definitely going on my shopping list. Lovely card!

  2. I like how you did the sentiment on vellum; it's such a great way to expand your choices! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

    1. Amanda, I color printed the greeting on vellum with my ink jet printer. I used SU RGB codes to make it match the card stock color. Then I covered the ink while it was still wet from the printer with clear embossing powder and heated it to melting. Sylvia

  3. So sweet, Sylvia. This card is really lovely. Thanks for playing along with this FabFriday Color Challenge.

  4. Hi Sylvia,
    I'm so glad you could play along with us at Fab Friday! That DSP is gorgeous and so is your card! I love the vellum sentiment, it adds a sweet softness.
