Friendship day is celebrated today and I am so very thankful for all my friends near and far, old and new. Stampin’ Up! has brought me a whole lot of new friends who I never would have met if it wasn’t for crafting. What a wonderful journey.
My card celebrates my gratitude for you, with the sentiment – I am thankful for YOU – which is from the Painted Harvest stamp set. The flower has been stamped in Stazon ink on vellum. I left this to dry. Then I turned it over and coloured it with Stampin’ Blends. This gives it a stained glass look. Then I attached the flower with the coloured side at the back. I used liquid glue along the black stamping so the glue can’t be seen through the vellum
When applying adhesive to vellum, ensure it’s not visible at the front. Some ways to do this are:
- Apply liquid glue in very fine dots along the black line (do this sparingly). This will only work if the image has a thicker border like this flower
- Apply glue using a Stamping Sponge to the back of image. This will apply a thin layer and won’t leave visible marks on your image
- If you add another layer, eg. sentiment, on top of the vellum, apply the adhesive to the area of vellum which gets covered by the sentiment
