As soon as I saw the inspiration bedding I pictured the Floral background in Chocolate Chip over a Baha Breeze card base. I'm sort of wishing I had embossed it now so the chocolate would be even darker and would shine a little too... next time...
While playing on Thursday I used the Manhattan Flower Embossing folder on vellum and really like how it turned out. I love that the Floral pattern can be seen through the vellum, adding another dimension almost. The sentiment is embossed on vellum and a rhinestone brad was added for extra elegance and sparkle!
Want to know a TIP I learned about adding vellum to carstock without the adhesive showing?!? This is the second time I've tried it and I gotta say, it's much better than anything else I've tried. Although, it is showing a bit on the sentiment, but I think that is because I did it twice (first time on Baha and it didn't show up as well) and because it is on very dark cardstock. In most cases though, I think it works well. So here it is. TIP: Squeeze a small amount of Tombo Multi Glue (white with green lid) onto your finger tip and spread onto vellum in a very thin layer. It dries extremely fast this way so you have to work quickly. In this case I mostly glued down the edges.
I hope you like! I'm not sure about the white box bow at the top corner. I've been racking my brain trying to figure out how/what to fix with it, but I'm just not sure, short of removing it altogether. What do you think? I have a Baha satin ribbon just like it but wider which I forgot about until my card was together. I think I'd probably like that better because it wouldn't stand out as much. But would the box box still be too much? Maybe a knot would be better and would symbolize "tying the knot" so to speak...
Anyway, I hope you try out Dawn's color challenge sometime- she is super talented!
Glad to have you here!
