Friendship Warms the Heart

Hello again! Well I must be on a Friendship kick cause here is another card with that sentiment! This card was a test run using heavy weight vellum paper and nestabilities...I used the Fleur de Lis pendant...first cutting it out with plain blue paper and then cutting it out and embossing it with the heavy weight vellum...yeah...I hear ya...I am on a vellum kick lately! Anyhoooo...i used an embossing tool to go over all the areas that are white...i did not color any of that...it is the pressure of the tool on the vellum that turns it white...have to be careful though cause it is easy to poke holes in the vellum if you push too hard. The paper I used for my card is from SU...added a few sparkly embellies and done! A little simple maybe but I am finding that seems to be my style! LOL that is me...kind of a plain jane! Thanks so much for all the lovely comments yesterday...they keep me going and creating! I am off to visit each of you and thank you so much for taking the time to stop by AND leaving some love! Have a very creative day!

HUGS!

Beautiful card Vicki! Thanks for sharing it with us :) I LOVE embossing on vellum - it's such a pretty look. I have a card started with vellum roses... maybe you've given me the incentive to finish it? lol!!!

It's very pretty! I think with a different sentiment and papers it would be a pretty Christmas card!
