Hi Stamping Friends,

I am really trying to focus on different looks and techniques.  I CASE’d today’s card from Kelly Acheson.  She is a very creative, exciting fellow demonstrator.  She also has a sense of humor hard to beat.

The base card is actually Vellum.  Now let me tell you one thing about Vellum.  Stampin’ Up!’s vellum is thicker than others I have used in the past.  I’m not sure how other vellum would work as a base card.  I used Whisper White craft ink to stamp the image on the front of the card.  The image is from the Climbing Roses stamp set.  On the inside of the card is a small card of Basic Black CS.  On a smaller piece of Whisper White CS I stamped the same image from the Climbing Roses stamp set and used Calypso Coral Stampin Blends to color the image and attached it to the Basic Black CS.  The wow factor happens when the card which is muted with the vellum opens to the bright image when the card is opened.  Take a look and let me know what you think.

Thank you as always for taking time to stop by.  I truly appreciate you.



Hugs and happy stamping,  MB
