Showing Some Love

Another post today. Might be a third, but haven't quite finished it up yet. This card I made for the Crafty Secrets Challenge on SCS. I got this new set couple weeks ago and it has such pretty images. This card was super simple. Card base is sage green. The pretty CS with the scroll is double-sided, called Front Room/Parlor. I don't like using double-sided papers for cards because I feel like I'm wasting that other gorgeous side, but I attached this to the base and tried not to think about it. Cut a piece of vellum the size of the card plus 1/2" so I could wrap that around to the back of the card and that's how I attached the vellum. Stamped this gorgeous image with Versamark and embossed with gold detail EP. The little cherub is actually a button, though I wouldn't want to attempt to button that one! hee hee. Snipped off the shank and attached it to the vellum. Bada bing...super easy card, but I really like how it turned out.
Stamps: Crafty Secrets Cherish.
Paper: The Paper Studio CS and vellum, Paperloft double sided CS.
Ink: Versamark.
Accessories: Gold EP, cherub button.

I totally agree about doublesided paper. I hate not seeing or using it too! Your card is just elegant and beautiful! I really like how you did the vellum and the embellishment too!
