Vellum Sympathy

Here we go again, I needed a sympathy card- that is 2 in one week.  This card was inspired by a uber talented demonstrator that I met and swapped with at convention.  I tried my hand at the vellum chalking technique and realized that I need more practice but I sent the sympathy card anyhow.  The recipient of this card was a man so he probably won’t notice the imperfections! (LOL).  I embossed the Flower Garden folder #123113 on vellum and then chalked over the raised image to create the soft look.

Pennant Die -Technique

Bring on the holidays with the Perfect Pennant Die, Embossing Folder, Craft ink and a Brayer.  Cammie went to town and brayered her Christmas cards for my pennant workshop.  What a sweet sister I have to contribute cards all the way from Tulsa OK  for my workshop in Ohio.  That is truly sharing what you love! Even better, the cards came ready to assemble no work required. So we got to OOH and Ahh over her fabulous cards while we applied the adhesive and assembled the cards.  The wreath card was by far the crowd favorite!

For each card, the base was done by rolling craft ink onto the specific embossing folder and then running thru the bigshot.  Wow! Same technique different folder and oh so different. These cards bring an end to the pennant on parade workshop.  Stay tuned tomorrow – its the 25th and as promised we have the results of the Christmas card challenge.
