Finally back in the stamp room Stamp#261 SU

IMG_6229 (672x800)

I had a recent request for some anniversary cards and I realized I should get a few of those made up and in the stash.  I still had paper left after making the required cards and went ahead and made this one. 

I overlaid the designer paper with a piece of heavy vellum from SU to soften it a bit and then built from there. 

The large heart is slightly embossed.  I ran it through the Big Shot with an embossing folder and then ran it through again to flatten it so it has texture but not really heavy embossing.  It went better with the softness of the image that way. 

The dies are all from My Favorite Things excep the mini hearts which is Simon Says.

I used washi tape on the top to cove the obvious glue line left by the scor tape I used to adhere the vellum panel.  The Sentiment is stamped with Staz On.  It’s the only thing that works for me on Vellum.  I seem to always smear my Brialliance ink when I use it on vellum.


  1. Brilliance ink is too wet for vellum. I can't get Staz-on to work on anything. A very nice card. I like the softening effect you gave things.

  2. Wow! This is sweet!!! What a wonderful anniversary card!!!! I like your new watermark too!
