We had our monthly Stamp Share on Tuesday so I needed to come up with a swap card. I have seen a few versions of a card online that I liked, so I decided to make one:
I was a little too confident that Fast Fuse wouldn't show under the vellum, but when you don't have the embossed dots to cover it, it shows! There are lots of layers on this card- the Soft Sky card base, vellum, Crumb Cake with the buildings, vellum, Crumb Cake with the trees, vellum, Crumb Cake with the sleigh and vellum. The vellum was all one piece that I cut to match the Crumb Cake pieces. I needed something that wouldn't show adhesive and wasn't so many layers! On to the next version:
Now I'm on to something! This one has a vellum overlay attached with the ribbon- no worries about adhesive! Here's what it looks like underneath the vellum:
I cut all of the pieces out of one 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" piece of white card stock, colored the parts I wanted and put them back together again. That left lots of holes by the horse and sleigh, so I put a scrap of white behind them. I'll show you how I did the yellow in the windows in a little bit. This was the final version I came up with:
And the view under the vellum:
All cut from one 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" piece of white card stock, but overlapped just enough to cover the holes. This also gave me more "sky" above. This is how I lined up the edgelits:
This is what the pieces looked liked before I layered them:
For the buildings, I cut another from Crumb Cake and added little pieces of Daffodil Delight on the back to look like lights for the windows and doors. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new Fine-Tip Glue Pen! It makes it so easy to add these tiny pieces! It dries quickly and really sticks! Just make sure you put the cap on or it will dry quickly! It's a nice size bottle to hold too.
Definitely a putzy card, but the results are worth it! I really had fun making these.
