Fun vellum challenge

Happy Monday. This week splitcoast is celebrating their fan club anniversary. There are special challenges for fan club members only each day. This card was made for Laurie's vellum challenge. You can read more about Dare to Get Dirty here.

The blossom on this card is made up of four layers of vellum card stock and two more layers of card stock for the center. After stamping the large flower from doodle this on the vellum with Stazon, I then colored the back side with Copic marker R29 and painted the front with gold dust twinkling H2Os. Then I dry embossed each petal from the back and cut out. I love the dimension you get with the embossing and all the layers.

The faux ribbon was made by embossing a strip of card stock with my Swiss dots embossing folder in my cuttlebug and then brushing gold dust twinkling H2Os on it.

I really love how this card turned out.

This is a gorgeous card. Thanks for sharing how you made it. As a newer stamper, I have never used vellum, so it is just so helpful to hear how you did this. I just signed up for your blog within the week and I love what I'm seeing. Thanks again!
