Dreams Do Come True Card

Hello!  I'm popping on to share a card I made with my new goodies from the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store- I'm so excited to be guest designing with them this month!  I love the Solstice 6x6 paper pad by Pink Paislee- the patterned papers are so pretty and it just has that fall feel to it without being so themed.  I paired it with the Dreams stamp by Neat and Tangled along with the banner dies and twine by Lawn Fawn:

I started with a piece of the patterned paper and cut it to fit my card front.  I splattered it with gold mist and let it dry.  I diecut the banner out of vellum and stamped the sentiment with Jet Black Staz On ink.  I stamped it again onto some pink patterned paper and cut out around it.  I added it to the banner using foam adhesive.

I wanted the sentiment to stand out a little more so I cut out another piece of vellum to add underneath the banner.  I cut it in a shape that kind of looked like a watercolor blob :)  I wanted it to look like there was white watercolor behind it.  To tell you the truth, I tried many times to actually watercolor the vellum but vellum and watercolor don't seem to mix well!

I adhered the vellum blog onto my card front and then added my banner over the top of it.  I used the Kool Tac Clear Foam Adhesive strategically so you wouldn't see them through the vellum.  I added the twine last, tying it to the left side.  I curled the ends a bit as well by wrapping it around a pencil overnight.

I'm so happy I had the chance to guest design for my favorite online store!  Thanks for having me!!

I really love the paper you chose for the base, and what a great tip for the vellum piece underneath!
