Meet Chelsea Gardens

Hello friends,

Today I have a new paper pack I'd like to introduce.  Chelsea Gardens is a pack with soft greens and greys and butterflies.

I paired the cardmaking stamp set with coordinating thin cuts with the January Stamp of the Month.


I stamped and embossed the branch and butterfly in silver on vellum paper.  Vellum is easy to emboss.  In fact, that's a fool proof way to guarantee your ink won't smear before drying. To make the muted colors of the butterfly, I colored on the back of the vellum after embossing.  And for the leaves, I colored on the back and then flipped it back over and added a bit more green to darken half of each leaf.

Here's a video showing how I assembled this card.




Supplies used

Be sure to take advantage of the Stamp of the Month savings this month as well as checking out the Love Letters that are only available in January.
