Make A Wish & Believe

Welcome back to Treasures in Letters, thank you for stopping by. Today I am sharing with you my second-runner up choice for the AECP Blog Hop that I participated in last Friday….so much fun!! And throughout this week I will show you some of the other cards I made on my journey to get to my final choice.

Here is my card for today. To make my card I used Altenew Warp Speed Stencil and dry embossed it in Vellum.

The Dandelion wisps were heat embossed on vellum and die cut with Altenew Dandelion Wishes Stamp and Die Set

To make this card I heat embossed 1 full-head dandelion and 3 half-head dandelions with Versamark ink and WOW Superfine White Pearl Embossing Powder (on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #80 card stock). I stamped the stems using Altenew Crisp Dye Inks in Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen. I stamped the seed pods in Lava Rock.

I wrapped the vellum panel around a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ light gray card stock and used a tape roller to glue in place (in the back). I arranged my dandelions and taped down the full-head dandelion but used foam tape on the half-head dandelions. I used a touch of liquid glue on each of the vellum wisps to glue them down. I adhered the gray/vellum card front to craft foam then onto a deep green 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ card stock, adhering the card front to a #110 Neenah Solar White Classic Crest card base. I heat embossed my sentiment onto deep green card stock using Altenew Pure White Embossing Powder.

The supplies I used for my card are: Altenew Warp Speed Stencil, Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen, Lava Rock, Morning Frost; Altenew Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder, Altenew Pure White Embossing Powder, Altenew Build-A-Flower Chrysanthemum Stamp Set, Altenew Tulip Stamp Set, Vellum, Deep Green card stock, Versamark, WOW Super fine White Pearl Embosssing Powder, Craft Foam, and Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #80, #110 card stock.

Welcome and Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. To give you a little background about myself, I am a Christian, have been married for 33 years to my wonderful husband and I have two beautiful, adult, married daughters who are dear to me. I love to craft and find it relaxing, challenging, and a way to express a deep desire to create and make things with my hands. In the past my greatest joys in creating came from cross-stitching and sewing (I was a design major in college). But now I find it in paper-crafting, more specifically in card making. My other passions are bike riding, weight training, chocolate, and ice cream.
