Today, I have a tone-on-tone anniversary card to share with you. This is among my favorite cards from all the ones I've created over the years. Working with tone-on-tone colors will make your finished project look so elegant.
To begin, I heat-embossed and die cut boho flowers and foliage (Gina K Designs) using clear vellum paper.
I used embossing folders (Darice) to create my background panel and embellishing strips using the same cream cardstock I used for the card base. I adhered the panel with foam tape. I also used foam tape to adhere the flowers and foliage being careful to hide the foam behind the embossing and pearl embellishments.
I was super happy with the way this card turned out and gave it to my in-laws for their wedding anniversary along with a gift card to eat out.
Designer Tip: To keep vellum from curling too much when I'm heat-embossing on it, I also heat the back of the vellum. I still get a bit of curling, but not so much that I can't deal with it.
Designer Tip: I highly recommend using a stamping platform such as a Misti when stamping on vellum and other finicky papers. It's so easy for the stamp to move around otherwise when you apply pressure.
Enjoy your day and thanks so much for visiting my blog,
