How adorable is this Vespa Die from Spellbinders called Out and About - makes me think of the episode of Everybody Loves Raymond then they go to Italy - love that...Frank and Marie on a Vesper is not your typical site, but loved the vesper.
I have created a whimsical feminine birthday card and am very happy with the way it turned out. Out and About has been cut/embossed using pink cardstock and layered onto the Elegant Ovals Nestabilities Decorative Elements . Before the cardstock was removed I used the Die as a stencil, sponging on the inside of the Die using Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Memento Dye Ink in Summer Sky.
The next layer (using paper from my stash) has been created using the Labels Forty Decorative Elements - I love the way the different Dies work together so beautifully - we are only limited by out own imaginations - don't you love that! The card base has been created using Labels Forty Nestabilities. All Dies have been cut using the Grand Calibur Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.
The adorable little balloons have been inked using Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko Memento Markers and the gorgeous shimmer using the irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Shimmer. I have used Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares for dimension ,and E-Z Runner on this card. I have used the Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Electric Yellow to create my own faux enamel dots - these have been randomly placed on each corner.
The sentiment is from my stash and has an epoxy circle added to the center.
