When I first saw Linda's sketch, it immediately put me in mind of a fancy-fold card, but as I've said before, I'm too lazy for that sort of nonsense 😆so I decided to keep it pretty simple and use vellum for the top layer.
The photos do not do this card justice - so just pretend, okay? I used the new Stitched Blooms card kit from MFT and die-cut some of the images in both Bubblegum and Pink Lemonade cardstocks, as well as cutting the leaves from Sour Apple. I wanted the look of shadows, so cut black versions of everything I'd previously cut from colored cardstock. I layered the black by slightly offsetting it and then created the bouquet arrangement. I wanted a curved design and once I was happy with how it was laid out, I used some Press 'n' Seal to hold it all in place while I worked on the rest of the card.
I die-cut a Desert Storm panel and a vellum panel from a stitched rectangle die and also the sympathy words from silver foil cardstock. So I could add some glue to various parts of the vellum, I first added some Nuvo Jewel Drops to the vellum and set it aside to dry. Once it was dry, I added glue behind the Nuvo drops and also the word die cuts and that held the vellum down nicely.
Thanks so much for visiting. The DT have some gorgeous cards using Linda's sketch so I hope you'll check them out.
I'm playing along with The Flower Challenge who are looking for acetate/vellum on floral cards this month.
