Vertical Greetings Card for WWYS #116

Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week we’re playing with the Vertical Greetings Stamp Set. I loved this set the first time I saw it. It’s simple and sweet, and the vertical greetings give your projects a point of difference. I wanted to incorporate the balled topiary image on a vellum panel for a soft look, so that was my jumping off point for my card this week. And I just happened to have Gorgeous Grunge on my craft desk, so from there the card just “grew”!

I used the thumping technique on the pot and leaves using a few different colours for each (Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon and Basic Grey for the pot; Delightful Dijon, Garden Green and Cucumber Crush for the leaves; Soft Suede for the trunk). I white heat embossed the sentiment about a third of the way in from the edge after stamping the background in tone-on-tone style using Tip Top Taupe ink and cardstock. Then I simply attached the vellum panel with washi tape and added a strip of burlap ribbon on one side. I added some Cajun Craze hearts and a little bit of Clear Wink of Stella on the foliage and card done!

Sadly, the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set is now sold out, but the 2015-2017 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers are still available while stocks last, and the Playful Palette Washi Tape pack is available at 50% off on the Retiring List and only available until 31 May or while stocks last.

TIP: Get inventive with vellum! Vellum can be tricky to adhere without the adhesive showing through on the front. Using washi tape to adhere it gets around that.
