Hope you're all enjoying the weekend!! We've got a beautiful autumn day here in George.
Before I show you my card I want to tell you what my dear friend Angela Bode has done for me. Many of you will know Angela from SCS and her blog I would rather be stamping. Well, I could not get hold of vellum in SA and I so love the look of it on the cards you all make with vellum on it.
I asked Angela if she could maybe sent me some from America and she was willing to do that for me. She has sent me 2 pgk with 25 pages each!! And what's more, she added lovely little crafting 'goodies' for me as well!! (you will see some of it on my cards in my next post). Angela, you're the best my friend!! - thank you so very, very much for doing this for me and I hope the 'goodie box' that I have sent you to show how much I appreciate what you did, will not take to long to reach you!!
Please hop on over to Angela's blog and have a look at the lovely cards she makes.
So here's my first card using some of the vellum Angela has sent me. It is my entry for the current sketch challenge over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog.
I've used a small piece of paper from the 'Far Away' range by Teresa Collins and a manila tag. I heat embossed the sentiment on the vellum using white embossing powder. The sentiment is in Afrikaans and says 'Congratulations'. The leaf stamp is from the 'Bloom & Grow' set by Verve and it was cut with the coordination die from the 'A CUT above DIES' range by Verve. The little daisy was cut with the 'Flower Trio & Leaf Trio' dies from the Die-namics range by MFT, The boderpunch I've used is by American Crafts. Added a twine bow and some silver rhinestones and it was done!!
That's it for now, will be back later with cards I've made with some of the vellum Angela sent me.
Thanks for popping in and have a great weekend!!
