Papertrey Ink's MIM #169: Vellum

Happy Friday and Shabbat Shalom!

I'm back with another card using *drum roll*...yep,vellum. Shocked I'm sure. My stepmother needed an engagement card, so I went into my craft room {which my sister describes as follows: "Wow, it looks like a pinata filled with confetti and sparkles burst in here...yep, that's about right, but I digress} and whipped this card up. I used the dies from Embellished Elegance and die cut vellum, white cardstock, shimmering text paper and started layering to create a wreath. I then slipped in some sequins in gold, silver and pearlescent white. Some peeking through the vellum layers, others accenting on top. Then I die cut some of the flowers from the set and heat embossed them in gold. This was all adhered to the beautiful and soft patterned paper from the Oh Darling collection (Crate Pa

per). Then to add texture and interested I adhered a large strip of lace to the bottom (as shown in this photo) and a thinner strip at the top. I then created the above double bow using sheer, gold metallic ribbon from The Ribbon Retreat.Finally adhered it all to my card base, rounded the corners to the right... et voila! Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

As a special treat (I hope you view it as such :) here are a couple of photos of my son and his father at the pool whilst we were on do I love Summer and those boys!
