Vellum Thank You

Today I'm sharing a card that was inspired from a couple of different people. The Frosted Embossing technique I used on the vellum came from one of Amanda Burditt's cards. She has a video showing you the technique on her blog, if you'd like to try it out for yourself. The floral design was inspired by I'm in Haven's cute card.
I used a thick vellum and found that I got a better frosted look by rubbing in a circular motion. I used my Simply Scored scoring tool to make the lined border.

I pulled out a couple of retired items, the stamp set "One of a Kind" for the flowers to use with my Boho Blossom punch and the retired Elegant Bouquet EB folder. A couple of Little Leaves sizzlits cut apart make up the green garland frame. I love trying new techniques, and this one was fun and simple. Ink used is Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and black Stazon for sentiment.

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day :-)

So Very Grateful Baby Card

Today I'm sharing a baby card which was inspired by Lin Brandyberry's card. This is my first time using the So Very Grateful stamp set, which I thought was so cute when I first saw it.

The colors in the Sweet Sorbet DSP were perfect for this little girl baby card. I fussy cut the floral images and then cut apart one of the floral images so that I had the floral thing going along the topside of the white scalloped border. 
This is a fun stamp set to watercolor.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look!
