Polka Dot Vellum

I am having so much fun with my new polka dot embossing folder and my Big Shot. The Embossing Folders that you can get from Stampin' Up! are slightly bigger than the Cuttlebug ones, so fit nicely on a card front. I was playing around with some different papers and loved the effect that it give to vellum, so I created this set.

The set consists of a Fancy Favor Box (I never know whether it is a Box or a Bag), a Pillow Box and a 3 x 3 card.

I have seen these flowers on a number of blogs including and when I came across a YouTube tutorial by Dawn (see here), I had to give them a try.

These flowers were made with the Regal Rose sheets from the Patterns Pack II Designer Series Paper (a level 1 Hostess Set). You can get 2 flowers out of 2 6x6 sheets.

I didn't have any Regal Rose ribbon, so I used my marker to colour my Whisper White Grosgrain and Taffeta Ribbon. Tip: make sure the ribbon is dry before attaching with mini glue dots - they don't stick very well when they are still wet.

I used the 5 Petal Flower Punch for the leaves and the Short & Sweet Stamp Set.

For the card I just put the sentiment on the inside.

I love short work weeks, but I am seriously going to have to detox from Chocolate come next Monday!!!
