PTI Make it Monday~Velum strip sentiment
Happy Valentine's Day all! My DH surprised me at lunchtime, came home and handed me a flower bouquet resembling our (my) wedding bouquet from almost 31 years ago :) I feel so lucky to have the most thoughtful man!
To continue this wonderful day, I made a card for PaperTreyInk's "Make it Monday" challenge. The challenge is to make and use a velum sentiment strip on your card. There is a video on the website, same link as above. I watched it and was prepared to follow Nichole's steps precisely, but I didn't have any velum tape, so I adhered mine by placing regular tape runner onto the back of the velum on both ends and wrapped around the card front panel. This seems to have worked out fine.
The card is quite self explanatory and I will just point out that I stamped the Lily of the Valley image twice, once on the PTI vintage cream and again on the PTI white. I cut out the white bells and used mini pop dots to adhere over the vintage cream image. I also cut along the the lowest leaf so that I could overlap the velum strip. Easy Peasy!
Thanks for taking a peek today, hope it is filled with unexpected surprises.
