Vellum card

Now that I've got a lovely craftroom and a tidy craft desk, I've been having great fun rediscovering treasures lost and actually doing some card making!

I'm really pleased with this card.  I stamped the flowers onto vellum using Versamark, and embossed them with fine detail Stampendous gold embossing powder. After carefully cutting them out, I coloured them with Versamagic (watered down) and used Stickles to create the flower centres.

I then adhered them to some pretty cardstock (after curling the petal edges), and added the greeting which I cut out of the vellum, and again stamped and embossed as above.

Bad blogger returns!

I don't know where my time goes to - since I took redundancy, my days seem full, and I can't think how I ever found time to work.

One thing I have done is to finally sort out my spare room, which was a 'work in progress' for way too long.  It literally was stacked with boxes which all needed going through - stuff to donate, stuff to put in the wheelie bin, and other 'stuff' that I really needed.  I have a wall of bookshelves which were overflowing and untidy, craft stuff stacked up and hard to get to, a desk piled high with 'stuff'.... you get the picture!  Finally I have a space that feels soooo good.....

After weeks of sorting and tidying, I finally have a creative space - yay!  I can't wait to get crafting again.
