Tuesday Trigger: A Little Romance

Hello everyone!

Back with a card inspired by this week’s Tuesday Trigger:

Past few days have been very busy, and after a long tiring day I thought I won’t make a card. But I couldn’t resist this soft vintage inspiration!

I took out my lace spool and some blue vellum, and made this simple and quick card:

Tuesday trigger a little romance

First I wrapped the lace around the base. Then I stamped the vase on a masking tape and used it as template to cut out previously-made-sticker blue vellum. I sketched the branches then traced over them with Antique Linen Distress marker.

I laid down the blue vase, and since it is vellum and transparent, I could see the branch extending into it. That is the look I was going for (delicate glass vase), but somehow it just didn’t look good 😦

So I took out the vase, adhered it to white card-stock and cut it out again. In short, I could have simply stamped it with light blue ink on white card stock and trimmed…

For the finishing touches, I added dots of liquid pearl to the branches, and stamped the sentiment with Antique linen Distress ink.

Before I leave, here is a picture of the beautiful moon here tonight:


Thanks for stopping by!
