Lotus Blossom is so far the most popular Sale-A-Bration product. And I’m not surprised at all. This gorgeous three step stamping stamp set is very versatile, and flowers look like hand-painted. It comes with two sentiments: simple “thank you” and absolutely beautiful “The kindness you show has no end…”. And this sentiment I’ve used in today’s card.
I wanted to keep this card sweet and gentle so decided to use Crisp Cantaloupe for card base and Pistachio Pudding for banner. I’ve layered the base (standard A6) with piece of Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum. Pistachio Pudding banner measure 1 1/2″ x 4 1/2″, and is dry embossed with Chevron Embossing folder to add some texture to the card.
I took a piece of Whisper White and cut it into banner that measures 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and distressed the edges. Then stamped Lotus Blossom in Crisp Cantaloupe. Added little stem in Pistachio Pudding. But it was missing something, so decided to stamp some splotches from Gorgeous Grunge. Sentiment is stamped in versamark and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder – LUSH, and it fits the vellum.
Before I put the card together I decided to add Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Bakers Twine (in Weekly Deals offer this week) to my white banner. To avoid visible traces of glue under vellum I used glue dots – perfect, as they are hiding under gold dots. For the rest of the card I’ve used snail adhesive. Less then 10 minutes and card is done 🙂
I love this card. It looks exactly the way I wanted 🙂 Soft colours, and a WOW factor with gold embossing and vellum. And all done in 10 minutes – it’s a win win 🙂
