Clear & Sheer Day 1
Hello everybody! I'm so excited to show you my homework from the first day of Clear & Sheer Online Card Class!
Day 1 was about attaching vellum to our cards. There are various ways to do this, but I decided to follow an example given by Kristina Werner where she wrapped the piece of vellum around the sides of the layered piece.
In my card, I wrapped the vellum around the top layer of the card, not around the second (black layer), too. That's how I prefer to do it, but I have seen where it is wrapped around the top two layers and it looks okay.
Gina K's latest Stamp TV kit, Sending Love, was used most of this card. I stamped the flowers (incentive gift), leaves & butterflies in various colors on a white layer and then added the vellum piece with the heat-embossed sentiment on it. The patterned paper and the card base made of Lemon Drop cardstock were in the kit. I added a few embellishments from my own stock. Not sure I like them, but I'm "chewing" on that for a few days.
Thank you for stopping by today! I appreciate your visits and comments very much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~ Day 2 of Sheer & Clear is coming up soon!
