Je t'aime - AIMPDC 15
Can you believe that today is March 1!! That means Doodle Pantry's Ants In My Pantry Digital Challenge 15 starts today at noon EST. Play along with our theme of "anything digital goes" for a chance to win!
Here's my card showcasing Doodle Pantry's Christmas Cactus. I printed an outline on vellum and then "embossed" it. (Info below) The sentiment is from Salutations Francaises.
Embossing on vellum is soooo neat!! Mine doesn't look as great as hers does, but here is the YouTube video that inspired me... How To Raise Your Vellem to New Heights with by Deb Valder.
I first cut the image with an oval and tried to adhere it to a scalloped oval, but then had to toss it all because my vellum adhesive is junk! It was noticeable and ugly. What to do??? I embossed another flower, adhered it to the orange panel, added the frame to the DP, and then cut out the oval through them both so the image could be seen. Problem solved! *Anyone have a recommendation for a good vellum adhesive?
My DP is Authentique Lastest & Greatest. I used Spellbinders Petite Ovals, Petite Scalloped Ovals, and A2 Matting Basics A. A random button tied with hemp and adhesive pearls finished it off.
