Good morning and welcome to Make it Thursday.
Today I am sharing two projects from our monthly card class. The card above was our Fancy Vintage Screen. I had seen a similar shaped card on Pinterest and decided to design my own version.
We used papers from the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper set as a stamping base (daubered around the edges with Soft Suede) and then stamped images from Elements of Style and Serene Silhouettes. We then coloured the floral image and punched butterflies using both the Elegant Butterfly & Bitty Butterfly Punches. We finished with basic pearls and floral trim. The screen shaping was created using the Decorative Label punch. If you only place your paper in to the punch half way and then punch you get the lovely shaped effect along the bottom.
Our second project (and my technique for the day) is this Vellum gift bag. I know my crafty ladies love using Vellum in their crafting and had previously loved the Vellum bags available in our previous seasonal catalogue. So I set about finding a gift bag tutorial that I could try using Vellum with. My tip for the day is to try replacing your usual cardstock or designer papers with a sheet of Vellum when making a gift bag to see the effect you will get. Vellum looks beautiful embossed (it goes white where the stress is placed on the Vellum when embossing). This works especially well with smaller bags like this. It would be perfect for party favours or to put brightly coloured chocolates in as a gift.
We finished our bag with an image stamped using Fine Feathers and a bitty button layered with matching cardstock.
