I made an anniversary card for my parents last week, it's their 55th which is emerald, so I wanted to make a green card although green is not a colour I usually work with very much, apart from the odd leaf here and there.
I brayered green Kaleidacolour ink onto a piece of vellum, and used a new stamp from Inkylicious and stamped it onto the green. I then covered the whole area in Versamark and clear embossed it and sprinkled a little stardust glitter before heating the powder.
I die cut the aperture in the card and left the circle in the card as a mask whilst I stamped the border using the edge of same stamp (I love that this stamp lets you do this, what a thoughtful design). Next I attached the vellum panel to the back, covering the excess vellum with a white circle border (i.e. two concentric nesties cut at once) to neaten the inside.
Finally I realised that I had forgotten to add the two people embracing (the stamp set comes with two optional stamps, the couple or a little girl on a swing - another fab idea) so luckily as I'd used vellum, I could stamp the couple on the inside of the card and you can still see them from the outside. Don't tell my mum, she thinks it's a lovely idea to have them on the inside and that I meant to do it :-)
As it's a circular card and there are also some roundy swirls, I thought I'd make a late entry into the Less is More challenge this week for Round and Round.
Phew, if you followed all that, well done, take two days off.
