THINK SPRING is the title for the latest challenge at CYHTP. For my card I used a cover plate die from Cutplorations a Stamplorations product. I cut it from white card stock and then using my Brutus Munroe stick and stamp mat I carefully sponged on the various colours which, to me, represent spring. After it was dry I added it to the black card front. Then I took an embossing folder from Craft Concepts, called In Bloom, along with a piece of shimmery vellum and I dry embossed the band. Even protecting it with some scrap CS didn’t prevent it from splitting a bit which was disappointing. After I attached this piece I took the sentiment strip which came from a gifted package of ephemera and attached it so that it hid the worst of the splitting. I shall have to play a bit to see how best to emboss vellum without damage. Any suggestions are welcome.
