I Need More Vellum in My Life

Seriously, though. This small 6x6 sheet of polka dotted embossed vellum came in a Simon Says Stamp Card Kit and I may or may not have hoarded it. Until now. And now I need more. Because I love it. And it makes me happy. K? K. Glad I shared that with you. Now... WHY do I love it? LOOK!

Happy Birthday


Ummm... because it helped me make this card and I love this card. Lots. It was so totally inspired by the Runway Inspired Challenge photo. The one below. I LOVE this inspiration photo. So much so, I actually created two cards based on it. I haven't photographed the other one yet, so that will come later, but I HAD to share this one with you! I've had these great flower dies in my stash for some time and I hadn't used them yet, so when I saw the inspiration, I KNEW I had to use them! I love them. Lots. I may or may not be in a rather lovey mood today. At least in terms of paper crafting goodness. Or so it seems.


Seriously, though. Isn't that awesome? Bring that dress up above the knee and I would so love it!!!! (That length sort of makes my legs look like tree trunks, so I avoid it. For reals, though. I have big calves and I cannot lie.)

Happy Birthday (detail)

I love the bright, bold florals combined with the woodgrain. Seriously, though. That's pretty awesome. For reals. Oh...and I used clear foam tape to adhere the vellum, placing it strategically behind the die cut elements. I love that stuff. For reals, though.

Anyway, I hope you have a fabulous day.

Have a Happy!

  10. So pretty! And, I'm sorry, but did you say CLEAR foam tape?!! I didn't know they made that. I need it. I love your blog and all, but you're starting to cost me a lot of money. :)

  11. I SOOOOOOO am addicted to vellum! I literally have to force myself NOT to use it on cards so I appear in control of the addiction! Ha! This card is *boom* amazing! I looooooove that inspiration photo too! Your card is so wonderful with the bold outlined flowers! And the woodgrain strip. You slay me.
