Transparency Wedding Card




For this one, I used a Staples transparency (LOVE these, they're embossable!). Stamps are from Heather's Stamping Haven and Stamp a Mania. I embossed with Top Boss White and Gold EP s after stamping with the Top Boss Tinted Embossing Pad. I heat set these, then added a small white cardstock panel underneath the sentimen. I punched all those little gold flowers from metallic paper (couldn't sleep last night, lol) and glued them onto the transparency with Aleene's Fast Dry Glue Pen. I did that mainly because the white panel looked really "stark," so I wanted to soften it a little. Then I dotted Tulip Fashion Bead Paint into each flower centre (LOVE that stuff, use it by the gallon! ), and added the little wedding rings as an afterthought becayse there was too much blank space underneath the sentiment.

Am new to your site and as much as your cards a truly beautiful, the commentary that you write about how the cards came to be is delightful to read about your thought process, how you realised there was too much space which brought about a special embellishment.

Hearing how others create helps us all to learn that not only do others box themselves into a corner but how you find your way out to a very pretty result.
