Stampin' Up Note Cards and Box

 For my July Workshop I made a box of note cards with envelopes using several Stampin' Up stamp sets, punches, card stock and papers.

Note Card Box is 1" deep and holds six note cards and envelopes.
Base is Watermelon Wonder.  Stamp set is Summer Silhouettes page 121 of the 2015-16 Stampin' Up Catalog.  Inks are Watermelon Wonder, Pink Pirouette and Daffodil Delight.  Title was stamped with Scrappy Cat Playful Serif

Box:  6 3/4" x 10 1/4" 
Scored on 10 1/4" side at 5 3/4" and 6 3/4"
Scored on 6 3/4" side at 1" and 5 3/4"
Front panel is 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" 

This card is stamped with the new SU stamp set:  Awesomely Artistic
The dragonfly was stamped onto Coastal Cabana Vellum

For this card I used the Camomile wheel (retired) on the background and the Language of Friendship flowers and punched them out with the Boho Flower punch (retired)

Another Awesomely Artistic card this one with Gold Stickles

Coastal Cabana, Watermelon Wonder and Daffodil Delight Vellum stamped, punched and stylus embossed flowers, it is hard to see in this photo, but these are beautiful.  

My favorite of the six, made with Papillon Potpourri  stamped, punched and stylus embossed from the Vellum.  This card has Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy.  I heat embossed the flower stems in with white embossing powder.  Again, this picture does not show how stunning the butterflies really are.

To make your own colored Vellum, use a brayer to ink on color to one side of vellum, it takes a while to dry so set it aside for about an hour or so.

Note:  When embossing the colored vellum it is best to stamp your image on the UN-INKED side and to emboss with you stylus on the inked side, this way the beautiful white lines show through your image and give it depth.

Thanks for taking a look, have a great day!
