Make My Monday: Autumn: Vellum

Welcome to another fun and fabulous autumnal challenge at Make My Monday!  This week we want you to use vellum somehow for your autumn themed projects.  Hard?  I don't think so--you've got some amazing DT inspiration on the challenge blog!!!

Here's my card~

Details~




I love to use vellum to soften bold colors and that is how I chose to use it on this card.  I stamped a panel of bold leaves and subtle brocade elements onto some natural paper and then overlaid it with the vellum.  I decided it needed a little something extra, hence the single brocade element and rhinestones on the front.  I also decorated the inside!!!  Proud of me, Ruth?! ;)

Thanks for stopping by!  Take a leap and join in this challenge--even if it is really challenging for you!  I promise you won't regret it!  Happy stamping! :)

The vellum has a lovely effect on this card! I think you've done a great job with the stamped background, as well as with the inside. This card is beautiful! Sorry I haven't visited you for some days, I've been away on travel without computer access...

Really beautiful card Mynnette. The vellum does give such a pretty soft look and the simple stamping is lovely.
Gorgeous stamping inside too.
Hugs, Fliss xx
