It’s challenge time again with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our challenge hostess for May, Charlene Merrick brings us another fun challenge.
This week’s challenge is a technique challenge …. vellum embossing – use either heat or dry embossing on your vellum.
For my card this week I used a few La La Land stamp sets, Heart Balloon Luka who also comes with presents and the Brick wall. When I was searching through my vellum box to work out what I was going to do for this challenge I discovered the blue adhesive vellum which I have had for years …. one piece was already embossed with the numbers embossing folder, obviously I had been thinking of doing something with it some time back and then changed my mind. Well now I have a Grandson I figured it would be ideal for a birthday card. I also had the white card base sitting on my desk with the acetate opening as I had been playing with that technique a week or two ago so I decided both would make a fun birthday card.
Now I have to say my Grandson isn’t even 2 yet … he will be at the end of this month, but I already have plenty of boy 2 year old cards so I am getting in an earlier start for next year. I will need some for Christmas when I give my cards away to family and friends.
Here is the inside of my card, very simple. The vertical Happy Birthday shows through the acetate on the front of the card and I added more of the blue vellum to match that on the front.
