Just Us Girls #305 - TREND - Use vellum

Hi Folks

Popping by with me 2nd Guest Designer post for the lovely ladies over at Just Us Girls.  This week the challenge is to use vellum on your card/project:

And here's what I came up with:

I started off with a 7" square card and then two layers of cardstock that had been embossed with Sue Wilson's Beaded Fanfare e/f.  I then used her Noble Dies Ornate Pierced Squares set for the rest of the layers alternating purple and white card.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up Afterthoughts set.  The vellum is the showcase of the piece.  I stamped my Heartfelt Creations Sunkissed Fleur using Versamark ink onto vellum and then heat embossed using purple e/p.  I did this twice and then die cut the elements out using the matching die.  I put the flowers together after having shaped the petals and then added them to the card.  The final step was to add some Creative Expressions Dazzlers to the centres of the flowers.  Strangely although I used purple e/f it looks more blue in the photos!!!!

Thanks for visiting me today.  Don't forget to pop on over to the Just us Girls blog to see the lovely creations the design team have come up with.

Happy crafting.
