Hugs with Vellum
My card was made for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #315. I have been wanting to use vellum for a while so I thought the sketch would lend itself to using it. This challenge consistently has great sketches.
A card base was cut from heavyweight vellum. Patterned paper and cardstock in two colors were cut to fit the required angle. One of them was die cut for a wavy look. The flourish was also die cut along with the sentiment. The elements were assembled and adhered onto the vellum. The sentiment includes a second die cut as a shadow. I elected to place the sentiment differently than the sketch so it would not get lost on the floral paper.
Because vellum is somewhat transparent, great care was taken to cover where evidence of glue or tape was visible. To finish the card, a few candy dots in lime were adhered and the punched butterfly was added.
