Embossed Vellum: Manhattan Flower Card

Here's another reason the Big Shot is a GOOD THING!

This is the 3rd card we made at the Just Cards Class I held a couple weeks ago. Believe it or not, it was the easiest of all the cards. The Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions Die made the gorgeous embossed roses on the card stock vellum, which was then simply attached to the Elegant Eggplant colored card stock base using a couple glue dots. The textured impressions die is designed so that you can also insert the base of a standard sized (4-1/4 x 5-1/2) vertical card, run it through the Big Shot and viola! you have an embossed card!

I am expecting "Mr. Brown" (the UPS guy, who's name is really Carlos) to deliver the coordinating Manhattan Flower stamp set this afternoon... along with some other fun stampin' goodies. So be on the lookout for more samples to come soon!

If you didn't receive my stampin' newsletter and already hear, I want to share my personal goal for the month of May--which happens to be National Scrapbook Month! It has been awhile since I have done any scrapbooking and I am getting WAY BEHIND on my family albums. So my goal is to complete at least one scrapbook layout each week. In turn, I will also be posting some of these pages here on my blog. I'm hoping the fact that I have said this goal "out loud" and have promised y'all I'd share them with you, that it will motivate me to follow through and get scrappin'! If you'd like to join me with my scrappin' goal... or some other goal that you've set for yourself this month, feel free to share! I'd love to know that I'm not alone. :)

Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'!

Best of luck on your personal scrap booking goal! Maybe I'll join you.
