Heartfelt thanks | CB stamps

Hello there, I am back today to show you my latest creation that I made last week 
and thought you would love to see it. It's an ombre design again but this time it's 
done using the fabulous Spectrum noir alcohol marker pens.

First cut a piece of portofino white card down to 29.5 x 10 cm and folded with
bone folder at the top. Take another piece of the same portofino card slightly smaller 
than the card blank. Using chisel tip of the spectrum noir pens I created the ombre
effect using three colours from one colour family. Adhered the matt to card using
 double sided tape.

Using my cuttlebug and go kreate concentric circle large die, I cut circle with PC transfusion vellum, I cut thanks out on Silhouette Cameo using packaging from cardboard boxes and coloured in the thanks with BT4 then heat embossed the thanks using perfect medium and wow EP vanilla sparkle and heat set with heat tool.

Stamped heartfelt with memento tuxedo black ink on white card using CB mini messages set, then 
cut the sentiment down to narrow strip. 

Adhered the thanks to the vellum using zig fine glue pen and attached the vellum to card using
collall 3D glue gel (making sure I applied the glue so it was hidden out the away) adhered the
sentiment with the same collall glue gel. To finish I used Anita's 3D gloss gel to the back of each
sequin using tweezers and attached them onto the card.
