Two Wreaths

The other night I decided to make a Thanksgiving-ish card with my Taylored Expressions Autumn Wreath stamps:

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark onto a strip of vellum, then heat-embossed with some brown embossing powder. I stuck the vellum to a piece of paper with some temporary adhesive while I powdered and heated it, and it didn't warp or fly away - bonus!

The vellum is popped up on Dimensionals, and I stretched it tightly before I stuck it down. You may be able to bounce a quarter off of it. :) The buttons, from an old old old container of Earth Elements buttons, cleverly cover up the Dimensionals. Card stock base is from A Muse. Yes, I'm quite proud of myself for using so much of that stuff lately. :)

I also tried another 6-panel-but-it's-only-4-panels door, but this time I used a piece of A Muse wood-grain papers:

and one of my hoarded SU felt wreaths. Love it! I got the idea for the bird from this card.

Hint1: Cut it from the non-glimmer side.
Hint2: The bird and ribbon will be way easier to attach to paper than to felt. Just a suggestion. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Great cards! I like how you used the vellum to layer over the wreath on your first card.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
