Live, Laugh & Love with Beautiful You & Scenic Scenery

I know it is Wednesday I I should be posting a project for this week's Paper Craft Crew Challenge. Unfortunately I have been a bit under the weather and then was helping a friend create her custom wedding announcements on Tuesday evening, so never had the time to finalize my card for this week's challenge. So, for that I apologize.  I really do like this week's sketch and will share my creation with you when I get it finished.  

In the meantime, I thought I would share a card I made last month that I think you will enjoy making.  I like that it uses both the Beautiful You stamp set from the Occasions Catalog and the Scenic Scenery DSP Stack from the Annual Catalog.  Oh, yes and there is Vellum as well.  I always love a project with Vellum!

My card is very basic except for our lady on the beach.  For this element I stamped on Vellum with StazOn then set it aside to for a few minutes to make sure it was completely dry and I wouldn't smear the ink.  After the ink was dry I used simply used the tip of a Bone Folder to dry emboss on the back side of the Vellum. For all the details on this technique check out my NC Demos Blog Hop from May 2016.  

The nice thing about using Vellum on DSP or cardstock that has been stamped is that you can use SNAIL or a little Fast Fuse to attach it and you don't see the adhesive. So, after embossing my Vellum I attached it to the Scenic Scenery DSP.  After that I just put a touch of Fast Fuse on the back of the DSP then attached one end of my Linen Thread.  I then layered my DSP onto the Pool Party cardstock.  I think added this to the Whisper White Thick cardstock base.  I finished up my card by adding my Live, Laugh, Love phrase.

Thank you for letting me share my card with you.  If you have any questions or can't wait to order any of the supplies I used please contact me.  I am happy to help you!

I hope you take a little time to live, laugh and love today!

Happy Stamping!
