Papertrey Make It Monday - April 27, 2015 (Using Vellum to Soften Patterns)

This card was actually made by making an error using too much heat while embossing a message at the bottom of the card and the vellum melted.  Therefore, I had to cut off part of the vellum.  Thus, only the top 2/3 of the card have the vellum over it to soften the colored background. Even so, I think it amplifies the softness that the vellum gives to the background paper.

I knew I wanted to start with a new stamp set that included an Iris.  Iris was one of my mother's favorite flowers and each time I see them brings back that memory.

Papertrey April 2015 Blog Hope


My take on the inspiration photos are the dark blue of the table cloth, the pattern vellum as the clear plates and glass, with the addition of pinks in the pattern background and the flower.

Thank you for viewing.

Thank You Bloom

The layout was copied from a card labeled "Constantly Stamping.Com", Artisan Design Team 2013.  I used a larger card layout without scallops on the border and used different flower, leaves and die cut.
