Bells and Boughs Beauty!

I originally received this card as a swap but can't remember who it was from. I loved the design and all I did was change the colors of the card. I used Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler & Always Artichoke card stock.

There is a bit of a trick to this card. The image was stamped on Vellum card stock with Jet Black Stazon Ink. The image was then flipped over and colored with Cherry Cobbler & Always Artichoke Stampin' Write Markers. The card stock was laid on the sponge layer of the Mat pack and the veins of leaves were traced with a stylus. It created a white dry embossed look when the Vellum card stock was turned around. The vellum was secured to Sahara Sand card stock with a mini glue dot. It's a really fun technique.

Here's the recipe:

Stamps: Bells & Boughs
Paper: Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke,Vellum Card Stock & Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper
Ink: Sahara Sand, Jet Black StazOn
Accessories: Petals-A-Plenty Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Cherry Cobbler & Always Artichoke Stampin' Write Markers, Stylus, Mat Pack

Happy Stamping,
