Gingham Bonjour


Good Tuesday morning!  Returned from a weekend in Cape Cod.  Fabulous blue skies.  Fabulous everything. 

Experimented with stamping on top of a background.  In this case, I paired some Avery Elle flowers with a classic gingham from Impression Obsession.  Still love gingham.

Kept it soft by adding a vellum strip embossed with the sentiment, also from Avery Elle.

MOOD WHEN DONE:  Relaxed

  5. I really like the look of stamping on top of the background. The sentiment on vellum goes so well with the softness of the blue gingham. Love this card! And a weekend getaway is such a treat.! Good for you both!!

  6. I always forget about vellum. I like how you avoided the visible adhesive issue by wrapping it around the back of the panel... I think I'll go try it myself! Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. This is so pretty. The vellum really softens up your focal point. I have so many fond memories of Cape Cod, but have not been in so very long. As a young professional, I spent 2 weeks at the Chatham Bars Inn, and as a young girl went with my family in the summers. Now, I want to go back again.

  9. Nice gingham background! Any color, any time -- love that! Pretty with the vellum strip. I like how you tucked the vellum so it didn't have to be adhered. The idea to make a sentiment band over the image is very clever and one to keep in mind.
