November Diva Dare-Day 4

Vellum Visions - November Diva Dare

Welcome to November's Diva Dare!  It's Maureen bringing you Day 4!  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. 



Oh, I've been waiting for this Diva Dare for awhile!  I love vellum!  I remember being introduced to it a LONG time ago at my Stampin' Up! workshops and loving the softness it brings to a project.  So I'm always on the lookout for new ideas with vellum.  I came up with the vellum doily idea in the summer during a Verve Release.  I didn't want to cover up some pretty mixed media paper and today's card was the same.  I didn't want to cover up the gorgeous colours on my patterned paper.  Today's card is a for a friend's mom's birthday so I made sure to include these heartfelt sentiments from Doodled Occasions along with the Hearts and Swirls frame from Die Sidekicks.

  14. That vellum doily is fabulous. It adds great texture and extra layers to the card. It doesn't distract from the pretty papers but rather enhances them.
