Make a card 2 - Video Tutorial

Today's "Make a Card 2"

Hey!  I had a great time making this card.  It took awhile but I love how it turned out!  I started out using a crafter's workshop stencil and used my distress inks to create the background.  I then used the Beautiful Day stamp set from Altenew.  I layered up a flower with stamping each stamp twice.  Once I stamped everything I then took my pencil crayons to add some details on the flower and the leaf.  I find stamps don't always have enough details on them so why not add your own details with pens, pencil crayons, or makers!

I added the background to our card base and then added the vellum on top.  After I added the flower/leaf with pop dots I then snuck some adhesive under the flowers/leaf to adhere the vellum more securely.   I also added some sequins and then I added my own sentiment I made which is available for you to download below!  There are 3 versions, just right click and choose download or save image and add to MS word or another word program and simply resize and print!

Thanks for stopping by!
