Second Club Project

Howdy all! Hope the weather is turning to Spring wherever you are! Here unfortunately, that means wind. But at least the snow keeps missing us!

For our second club project last week, we used the fabulous new item, the Manhattan Flowers Textured Impressions Die. For those of you that have used Cuttlebug embossing folders, it's just like that! For those that haven't, it dry embosses the image when put through the Big Shot. The flower on the die coordinates with the Fifth Avenue Floral set (p. 106).

I chose to use Vellum Cardstock for our first use of this-there will be more in future months!!! Here is the first version. I was going for elegant for a wedding card but the verse could be changed out for ANY occasion!

The card base is Basic Gray. The flower is embossed on Cardstock Vellum and layered onto the Gray, attaching with Vintage Brads on the corners. The Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon was tied near the bottom before attaching. The verse, from the Sincere Salutations set, was stamped in Basic Gray at the top of the vellum. Quick, easy & elegant!
This version is the same, but I changed out the Basic Gray ribbon with a White Taffeta one. Just a little different look! You could use ANY color as your base and it would look good!!

This last version was done with a White Card base, and a Basic Gray layer under the vellum. It's a few more steps, but the same basic look if you want the white base.
