March Card Chain Challenge


Today is reveal day for the March CCC, this month I followed both the colour options:

and the layout option:

Here is my card:

I used My Favourite Things bundle of blossoms background stamp to stamp the background in grey. I then stamped it on yellow cardstock and heat embossed it in silver, I cut a strip so that it would match the pattern on the base. The image on the card base was bolder than I wanted so I put a sheet of vellum over it first, just attaching it under the yellow panel. I got this idea from Lisa at I'm in Haven (I just love her cards).

I heat embossed the sentiment in black, the process of doing this warped the vellum a little so that it no longer sat flat on the front. I decided I didn't really mind that so went ahead and finished the card off with 3 little diecut flowers and filled the centres with Cosmic Shimmer glossy black PVA. Here is a close up:

This card has been sent to Shylaashree in India. I am not sure if she will have received it before the reveal as it takes a long time for snail mail to go from the UK to India.

Here is the card that I received from Jerrie in Wisconsin:

She has poor vision but still she doesn't let it stop her from making the most amazing cards, thank you Jerrie for gifting this one to me and it arrived for my birthday so that makes it extra special.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it.

Lovely card Hillary. The embossing with the vellum overlay is such a pretty and delicate design.
