Marianne Designs Vellum Candlabra Card

I made this card using one of the Marianne Designs Star Collection Stencils I got from Kamya this week.

The candlabra was embossed on vellum using a small stylus, then I used a white pencil to lighten the embossing. The medium green pearl card was cut with two sizes of Spellbinders Grand Labels One. The smaller one was placed on the diagonal inside the larger one to cut a window for the vellum, then the vellum was attached to the back.

Next, I cut a larger piece of dark green CS for a mat for the lighter green, and to back the vellum so the embossing showed up better. The layers were mounted onto a larger sheet of Core'dinations white pearl CS, then I did a bunch of outlining and accented the candlabra with a gold pen. My outlining could have been neater. It was kind of hard to work today because it was only 46 degrees here today, and we only have a couple of small electric heaters in the shop, and I was freezing. I suppose we will have to close soon.

Anyway, next, I made a back for the card by cutting another sheet of the white pearl CS with the same size die as the card. I folded the top inch or so of this die cut, and lined up the bottoms, and attached the top folded part to the back of the card. I had to devise a way of attaching the back because the card is over 7" square.

Last, I cut some Marianne Creatables poinsettias and corner decorations out of the white pearl CS and some gold mirror card to embellish the corners. Then I added a bow.

Hi Maria, I got mine here:

Those are all the Star Collection stencils they have. I want some more of them, and hope I can get them before they run out.

As far as I can see, I think they aren't made any more. There were a lot I wanted but never could find.

I just found these last week.

Hello again, Kathi: Thanks so much for that information. Your card is stunning, so beautiful and classy. I hope I can get this stencil. I never heard of this Kamya company and for some reason, their website is not working because I just can't log on. I will give it another try later on.
Thanks again and have a great day.
