Forever Friends

Congrats to Claudia, today’s Featured Stamper (FS229) at Splitcoast! I chose Forever Together to case. I kept the general layout, sentiment as focal point, and monochromatic color. I changed the images, added some inking to age mine and rotated the layout. I was also inspired by Amelia Tunic from yesterday’s IC challenge.

All images are Our Daily Bread designs. I’m just loving this crochet bg image. For my card, I wanted to stay monochromatic but I also wanted it to show up. So I white embossed it on white vellum and inked the edges w/ the antique linen ink. When I attached to the front of my 4.25 x 5.5 ivory card, it was even more visible. I noticed the vellum warped a little at the top, but vellum can tend to stretch when embossed and to me, it looks more like real lace.

The sentiment was stamped on white, cut w/ an ODBD custom die label one, and aged the edges. The butterfly was also white embossed on vellum and die cut w/ a backing vanilla piece of paper (another ODBD die).

On some leftover embossed crochet bg, I used a double border punch and attached this over my white frame then attached the sentiment on top. I added the Jolee’s flower and some ivory and white punched branches.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
