Embrace Life.

One of my favorite sets ever from Stampin' Up! is this Embrace Life set. It is so versatile and pretty! You can use it for backgrounds and focal points. It is all around a great set and I frequently give it away as a gift. With all that said, I had to borrow it from my friend Dawnette to use it because I don't actually own it! Crazy, right? Here is my card:



I stamped the flowers onto vellum paper with Versamark and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I adhered two of them straight to the card but I wanted the top one to pop a little more... I added some bright pink chalk pastels to the back of it! Once they were all adhered to the card, I added a little glitter to them. I love how it turned out. Hopefully my swap buddy will, too! Hee!

Hope you are enjoying your day! Thanks for stopping by!

This looks beautiful. The funny thing is that I've had a piece of vellum paper sitting on my table for 3 days now, trying to figure out a pretty way to use it.

Hi! The paper I used was Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, and Whisper White. I also used the Vellum paper for the flowers. Thanks for looking!

Those flowers in vellum are amazing. It adds elegance and softness to the card against the red. I'm adding this to my favorites; tfs.
