November Diva Dare-Day 3

Vellum Visions - November Diva Dare

Welcome to November's Diva Dare!  It's Charmaine bringing you Day 3!  This month's dare is entitled Vellum Visions.  Soft and classy, vellum always makes a big impression.  So, this month, we are daring you to add some vellum to your card or project. 
I don't use vellum very often, but when I do, it's usually to "soften" a busy patterned paper so that I can stamp a sentiment.  For my card, I used the Surely Goodness set along with the coordinating dies, Goodness Flowers Die Set.  The papers are from the Simple Life Collection from Echo Park. 

I stamped the sentiment onto the vellum and then some flowers from the set.  The large flower was die cut and then stamped and added to the card with foam tape.  I used some ribbon from the Spring Fling Collection to finish the card.

  5. Beautiful! That's pretty much how I use vellum, too: as a backdrop for a sentiment. It really allows what is behind to show through but doesn't let it be distracting.
