hello!  I hope this finds you enjoying some nice summer weather.  I am still under a pile of report cards but I am making some headway.  I wanted to drop in today and share a quick and simple card with you.  I think what I love most about it is the textured vellum which helps mute those vibrant colour.  Don't get me wrong...I LOVE vibrant colours but I just like the contrast.

  1. Create card base.
  2. Cut layers, strips and emboss vellum.
  3. Cut out flowers.  Adhere flowers.
  4. Stamp sentiment.
  5. Adhere remaining layers.

Hugs to all,

P.S. As you may well know I have been playing around with my blog layout, colours and even posts.  It won't be long before I find just the right thing! If there is something you just LOVE about one of the changes I have made please let me know.  I don't want to take it away if you like the change...

This is gorgeous. I love the effect of the vellum. I haven't used it for years - must pick some up. Love that patterned paper too. Hugs to you.

Alli, this is a wonderful card and I agree...the contrast is great. I'd never thought to emboss the vellum. Brilliant! :)

I LOVE the texture of that vellum layer. It feels like a burst of rain drops on the lake. Very beautiful card! Love the Royalty blinkie!!! Way to go!

Hi Alli,
I love textured vellum! The card is fantastic. I've been playing with textured vellum also, but I haven't settled on my card design yet. I love how you used it to mute bright colors. Thanks for the inspiration!
