Hi Friend, How is your week going? Are you and the family enjoying the crisp fall days? It's the perfect time of year to grab your favorite fall pumpkin spiced beverage, get comfy and prepare to be inspired!
These past couple weeks, I had the opportunity to teach in Canada and met so many wonderful crafters, however one of my favorite things was seeing crafters have the "aha moment" as they shaped their flowers and put together beautiful projects in class. Many of them went from feeling like they couldn't before the class started....and with some simple steps throughout the class got stunning flowers and projects. Maybe you find yourself in that spot today.....your creativity is stuck or maybe you've seen these beautiful projects, and thought to yourself, "I could never do that."
The only thing between you and these beautiful florals and projects is just doing it, following the directions, and practicing.....anytime you learn something new, you make some mistakes, but life is great at teaching us that mistakes aren't failures when we learn through them.....plus there is no such things as "mistakes" in crafting....it gives you the perfect opportunity to embellish!
Guess what!!!!!! You asked and here it is.......ta da.....the Vellum Rose video: https://youtu.be/JFsuwlZHNCw. This has been a highly requested tutorial and I am happy to bring it to you today!

To make the card base: Taking the A4 cardstock and score at 6 cm and at 12 cm along the long edge. Fold into valley and hill folds.

All the matting layers will be cut at 2 mm smaller each side. Cut one matting layer in each of the Apricot card stock and the design paper found in the paper pad to fit all the card base elements. Ink the edges of the design paper with walnut stain ink. Adhere all the matting layers together, except the top edge of the card front and the first matting layer. This is so you can slide the slider between the card stock layers. If you forget to do this, don't panic. Then you make a band and adhere to the back of the card front. Fixed. Adhere the slider to the top center of the card background front. Adhere the card front to the center of the card foot. Slide the slider in to place.

Then I die cut another of the regal borders die from the burgundy cardstock and then I trimmed the border so that it would fit the middle portion of the card as shown.
