Vellumwrap

Just rotate a top folding card, for fun. It’s a little different. The vellum paper band is mebbe 2″ wide, and stamped with SU! Craft White (pigment) Ink, then carefully heat set. Vellum paper is more delicate than regular card stock and will pucker and bubble, if you get too close with the heat tool, so keep your distance, eh?! The background stamp is Dots & Daisies, SU!

The focal image (Good Things Grow, SU!) was embossed with Pretty in Pink Craft Ink and Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder. Postage edge scissors are by Fiskars. Base of card is Blush Blossom–I love this soft toss up between shell pink and peach and for some reason, find it “comforting” when paired with caramel and chocolate tones. The sentiment is from Curvy Verses, SU! It’s one of my favorite sentiment sets and I like the wavy effect–it’s just different enough.

  2. hey, love the card, but wondering where you are? need julie fix…lol

  3. I love the glittery pink. . . Such beautiful simplicity–utterly inspired!

  4. Sweetness!

    I agree. I love such color combos. There’s just something about them.

    And the soft white ink on the vellum–lovely touch.

  5. Maybe the color combo seems comforting because it is kind of shell-like; relaxing, beachy. It also kind of reminds me of a baby–the peachy skin tone and the soft caramel tone of their eyelashes on their skin? Whatever it is, it works, especially the way you have done it here! :)
