House of Cards: Vellum or Acetate


Hi, all!  It's time for another monthly challenge at House of Cards, and this month we're asking you to use vellum, acetate, or some other clear/translucent paper!  Take a peek at my creation...


I used a sentiment from the Stitched Sunflower set by MHKDesigns and printed it onto vellum to satisfy the challenge parameters.  I added it to a panel with some papers from the Sunflower Sampler pack and punched clouds.  A few blue rhinestones add a splash of color.


To complete my "scene", I used some paper sunflowers made by my teammate, Cohenna!  I LOVE the amazing texture she added to the centers!  Some die cut grass and punched leaves add the green that is needed.  I drew lines on the leaves with a Versamark pen for more texture.


I then added my focal panel to the card base.  The paper on the card base is from the Party Hardy paper pack.  I also added cheesecloth for even more texture.  I really love the way this card turned out, and I hope you like it, too!  Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below!


Thanks for stopping by today, friend!  That's all for me today, but I hope you take some time to join the fun with us at House of Cards!  Don't forget to stop by and show some love to the other gals on this team--they ALWAYS come up with amazing creations for your creative viewing!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, all!

Oh love love the multiple textures you used on your card - very eye appealing - and love the staples on the vellum. I am needing this beautiful sunflower stamp set, I'm thinking sooner than later. Great card.
