One of the stamps in the set, Blowing Kisses, is this sweet little vase of hearts. Yes, it is meant for Valentine's day I suppose, but I wanted to use it for a more generic card. Of course the easiest way to do this would be color choice. I chose Bashful Blue and So Saffron.
I stamped and colored the vase on Watercolor paper, then set it aside while I made the base. The base is Bashful Blue with So Saffron and Whisper White. On top of that I layered 4 squares punched with the 1 3/8" square punch and finally - the vellum layer.
First I embossed the Vellum with the Big Shot and the Framed Tulips textured impressions embossing folder. Then I flipped it over and colored the indentations with a Bashful Blue marker. After that dried I went over it again with a Bashful Blue marker. Vellum is tricky to adhere to cardstock because adhesive will show through the vellum. For this card I used a mini glue dot in each corner.
My stamped image, and all of its layers, was adhered to the top of the vellum. I like how the background of this card is soft and muted due to the vellum which makes the tiny image and the sentiment stand out. It frames it quite nicely I think!
The card, by the way, is 4 1/4" square.
