I’m using one of the wonderful, moving sentiments and frame from the Eternity set along with the beautiful Tulip Corners. I’ve always loved this quote and I still get chills every time I read it. The frames and tulips were all gold embossed. The frame was embossed twice on vanilla colored vellum with the quote stamped inside one with black ink then both were die cut using 2 sizes of the exclusive ODBD/Spellbinders matching Eternity Labels One die. I layered the smaller vellum label (the one with the quote) on top of a piece of white to brighten it a bit, then used a gold leaf pen to edge the labels.
[TIP: if you stamp an image like this quote on vellum and it doesn’t appear as dark as you’d like, stamp it again on white paper. Line up and attach the vellum image on top of the white image and trim the white so the edges don’t stick out. Instantly brighter with darker type!]
The tulips were all colored using markers and a water brush and cut out. After arranging my many layers (yes there are 5 not counting the card front or quote labels), I attached the quote and arranged the tulips around it. The finished card measures 6.5 x 5 (A6).
