Vellum Cameo


I came across some coasters that looked like the old fashioned cameos and thought I would try to translate it into a card. The base is Bordering Blue which was embossed in white with the Bella Toile. The vellum was folded in half over this and secured in the center under the main circle. (You can add a tiny dab of vellum tape in corners if you like). Botanical Blooms stamped first in the Bordeing Blue ink and then in Versamark and embossed in white. Add dots with white gel pen and alternating piercing. Scallop circle die is from our Big Shot die selection. Added white taffeta ribbon that was run through a ribbon slide. Center of slide ring was filled with liquid glue and Dazzling Diamonds added for some sparkle.

Love this card. The white and blues are so clean and crisp looking. It is so French Country/Victorian looking. Reminds me of my grandmothers house when we would visit her during the southern summers. The smell of fresh cotton sheets and the aroma of just time standing still.
