Coloured Vellum technique

Wreath Gratitude Card

Case challenge 13 – stamping off

Week 13 on the CASE challenge is this beautifully elegant card by Julia Carmichael, more info here.  The stamping off technique is simple but effective, and can be used in so many different ways.  I decided to go festive, and so started off with thick Very Vanilla for my card base.  I used the Peaceful Noel stamp set, with it's lovey winter foliage images.  I stamped in Tranquil Tide, Merry Merlot and Soft Suede, with each one also stamped off to get the fainter shadow image beside it.  To make things easy, I used my Layering Squares framelits to cut [...]
