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.
Plum Pudding, Royal Velvet, Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse
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.
