For Day 25 at Beccy's Place Month Long Holiday Cards Challenge the prompt is the letter V.
I have chosen Vellum
The main centrepiece of this card is this fancy Frosted Elegance embossing folder from Crafter's Companion. It is a large size at 6" square so on this 8" square size you don't really need an awful lot else.
When it was my birthday at the end of September I had some pennies to spend from family and treated myself to some of the items in the Glittering Snowflakes collection that CC brought out. This fabulous embossing folder was one, as was the patterned vellum. This is an offcut from a previous project. It was a really expensive pad but the thickness of it really is impressive. By backing it with a layer of the blue card it really shows the colour through it.
I embossed some Core'dinations cardstock which has a whitewash finish to it. I then sanded it back and the blue the comes through. I also sanded the corners lightly to create a vignette effect.
The middle is a plastic embellishment that came from the wedding section at The Range. It is meant to look like diamante but the plastic comes out of the little holes so I filled them in with some silver glitter glue blobs to make it more sparkly. The centre is a blue self adhesive gem.
Finally the sentiment has been recycled from a card and matted onto a scrap of silver cardstock. You know sometimes you look at something you have made and think you had an out of body experience? This is one of those cards that looks so elegant that I'm not sure it was me that made it!
