Thanks Oscar

Hi everyone.  I have another CAS card to share today.  AAA Cards challenge is to create a card inspired by the fashions on the Oscar red carpet.  Such a fun and unique challenge.  So my inspiration came from the dress worn by Prianka.



And since there are a lot of speeches thanking people, I thought a thank you card would be appropriate.



On an A2 piece of vellum cardstock, I heat embossed the foliage images with Silver Pearl embossing powder.  Then I die cut it with a Scalloped Stitched Rectangle to give it some elegance.



Next I die cut the Heartfelt sentiment three times from white shimmer cardstock.  Only after halfway through the third cut did I realize I wasted some beautiful and expensive shimmer paper. Since only the top piece will be seen, I should have just die cut one from shimmer paper and the other two from plain white cardstock.  So that’s what I did for the Thanks sentiment.  I stacked there for dimension and adhered them to the vellum.



To attach the vellum piece to a white top folding card base without the adhesive showing through, I carefully added adhesive behind the sentiment and the embossed foliage.  A few Crystal Clear sequins were added as a finishing touch.




I am playing in the following challenges:

AAA Cards – Game 85 Oscar Red Carpet
CASologyWeek 240 Foliage
Happy Little Stampers – March CAS Die Cuts
STAMPlorations – March Anything CAS Goes optional twist Sky Blue
