With one of my stamping buddies being a guest designer for CAS Mix up I just had to participate with a creation to support her. And this card also works for the challenge at Just Add Ink with my F
being the word friend and/or foliage, so I’m linking it there as well.
Mixed media isn’t something I am good at, but I do like vellum so I decided on this design. My first attempt at putting the vellum and the die cut layer together didn’t go well, so I restamped it all and heat embossed carefully. I used the Be Kind stamp set and dies from SSS and a GKD die for the layer opening. Used 2 different EB powders one by Ranger and the other Cosmic Shimmer. And I clear embossed the sentiment after stamping it in Mowed Lawn ink. The embossed pieces of vellum were done using a technique from one of the links shown in the challenge. Using a scrap piece of green cs I glued it flat to the card front ensuring it would be hidden by layer panel. With another scrap of the same colour I stamped the leaf again, heat embossed and die cut it. Die cut the same leaf in the vellum. The vellum for the window was also heat embossed and I glued this flat to the back of the window and then added foam tape so it would pop up from card front. Once it was adhered I added the die cut leaves as shown. The dimension on this card is really nice. It is a bit different to what I had in mind but I am happy with the results nonetheless.
