Manhattan Blues

I made this card for a swap I'm doing with my downline.
I really wanted to use the Manhattan flower embossing folder with vellum cardstock, but it took awhile to figure out what to do with it after!  I decided to use Basic Gray and Bashful Blue.  I haven't used this colour combination before, but I love it!

I made the scallop square with the Scallop Border and Scallop Corner punches (see Gretchen Baron's blog for a fantastic tutorial on all the sizing of different squares for this technique).  I punched the corners with the Horizontal Slot punch and tucked the vellum piece in those (I didn't want the adhesive to show through, so I put it on the corners on the back side after they were tucked in).

Then I layered it on some Bashful Blue wrapped with Gray Taffeta ribbon and stamped the greeting in Basic Gray.

Hopefully they'll like it!

Blessings to you,
