Sending happy mail and thank you cards

Hi.. Crafty friends...

Here I am with my second DT post. To be frank I really struggled and liked the process of these 3 cards. I hope you are playing along with our October challenge which is a recipe. Please do read Guidelines carefully before linking your project.

Card #1
** I masked the card base (1"around the card base), placed the stencil diagonally on the base and secured with masking tape.
** I mixed candid apple distress ink with texture paste, applied it through stencil. Left it dry on its own.
** Die cut the scalloped frame (bigger) with same CS, few vellum fern flourishes and one white fern flourish.
** I double heat embossed the CS fern flourish with gold embossing powder to give it dimension. Die cut few Thank you, adhered them together and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
** To assemble the card, I foam mounted the frame on card base around the stencilled area. I put silver embroidery floss on top of which glued ferns. Added the sentiment.

Here is a close up of die cut embellishments, just love this texture of white embossing powder.

** Used distress inks in blue range to blend over them.
** I stamped the image towards bottom and coloured with Staedler water colour pencils.

 (1 sentiment, 2 die cuts, 2 fussy cut images, 1 stencil)


Card #2

** This is my first attempt in colouring on vellum. 
** I stamped & gold heat embossedin the image on vellum. 
** Used few copics to colour it on back (many have said that colouring directly on heat embossed image with copics will damage copic nibs). 
** I didn't feel like taking risk with glueing vellum on card front. So i left 1/2" towards top so that i can fold and glue it behind. 
** Heat embossed sentiment with gold embossing powder. 
** Added few enamel dots to the card.

Here is close up sentiment and the the coloured flowers.
