MIM 2 -- Vellum Sentiment

This week's challenge for Make It Monday was to use a vellum sentiment strip on our card.  I love stamping and embossing on vellum so I chose to do both.


I ran a piece of vellum through my cuttlebug with the In Bloom impression plate.  LOVE that look!  I thought it would look neat through a Mat Stack 3 window.  I stamped an image from First Fruits around the window in versamark.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed a frame image from the Mat Stack 3 collection.  I then stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment from Birthday Basics in the center.  The strip is popped up on mini-pop dots.  They are tiny enough to be hidden under the embossing.






All supplies Papertrey Ink unless noted

Stamps:  Mat Stack 3, First Fruits, Birthday Basics
Paper:  Scarlet Jewel, vellum
Ink:  Versamark, black (memento)
Accessories:  Mat Stack 3 die, In Bloom impression plate, stain ribbon(?), Garnet EP (stampendous!), mini pop dots
