Vellum is one of those materials that I don’t tend to work with a lot! It can be tricky since regular Snail Adhesive shows up when you use it behind vellum! Since it is somewhat sheer it can be difficult to place it over a white or a color or a pattern! I did create the card above with the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum and I love it!!! I really love using purple for the holidays! It is so elegant!
I started with a Blackberry Bliss card base and because it is so dark I added a Whisper White piece to the inside (4″ x 5-1/4″). I cut 2 of those pieces in white and used the other for the front. I cut a piece of the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum the same size and laid it on top of the Whisper White. For adhesive, I used Snail Adhesive and placed it strategically under the greeting and snowflakes. I added a bit in the middle of the card and placed it down. Then I added the greeting from the Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set stamped in Smoky Slate. I die cut the greeting with the Deco Label Framelits and layered it with another in Blackberry Bliss. I added the greeting to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals! Then I stamped a few snowflakes from the Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set and punched them out with the Snow Flurry Punch (Bundle & Save 15%). Once I determined where I wanted to place the snowflake, I would lift up the vellum and add some Snail Adhesive. So technically the corners and other spots are not glued down but the vellum is secure on the card front! I actually really like that look for this card because it makes the snowflakes look like they are floating and that silver foil really looks nice and shiny!!! Of course, I finished the card off with a Rhinestone in the center of the snowflakes!!!
Since I had a few extra snowflakes punched out, I thought I would add them to the inside as a little decoration! I love it!!! You open it up and think you will see a blank inside or just writing but there are fabulous snowflakes too! 🙂
You can see another sample using the Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set here! I love it and you can use this set into the Winter months as well for Birthdays and more!
