Creating depth in your project with Vellum

Today I am showing you how to create depth and added interest in your cards using vellum.

I started by creating a background, I did this using water colour over a clear embossed background. Once dry I covered the image with some printer paper and dry ironed it to remove the embossing powder as I wanted a smooth mat finish.  Now I wasn't overly happy with how vivid the colours were but hey Vellum to the rescue!

Next I wrapped the card in Ivory Vellum using extra strong tape to secure from the behind. I love how you see a muted image and instantly want to look deeper into the image.

Using some off cuts from my background I die cut the Happy sentiment and stamped birthday onto a strip of white card, I attached the die cut using glossy accents and the strip with strong double sided tape.

With the remainder of the off cuts I fussy cut some of the flowers and leaves and stuck these to the right hand side of the card. I love the colours and feel of this card. 

Next I mounted the panel onto a 5x7" white card blank and added some Nuvo Jewel drops, They are transparent so work well to pick up on the colours in your project, 

I am so happy with the soft muted look of this project, the detail in the flowers is amazing and just makes me want to smile.

  Here's a list of products I used along with all the links you need to fins them;

  1. I love the soft feminine look of your card. You did a good job of describing how it was made too. Very pretty!
