Hello and thanks for stopping by today! I have another really easy card to share with you today. Do you enjoy the lined images in the Graceful Glass Vellum pack as much as I do?. I admittedly am not able to use it easily, as the patterns are very “busy” and don’t always adapt itself into my simple designs. I’m thinking that it could be a Christmas card or all occasion, an idea that really let’s the paper show off and work it’s magic.
It could be a Christmas card

I’m also playing along at Just Add Ink this week. My “twist” is the fact this could be a Christmas card but was not intended to be one! CLICK HERE to visit now.
measurements for this project
Whisper White Thick card stock card base: 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Wood Textures DSP layer: 2″ x 5″
Graceful Glass Vellum paper panel: 3″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White card stock scraps for die cuts and stamped images
This is a very easy and elegant card design that can be adapted for any theme or occasion. With the vellum panel in front of the Wood Textures DSP, It gives a hint of color and depth to the project.
Keeping the colored area to just the edge of the vellum, it brings a type of border to the design. I colored the little florals with Stampin Blends alcohol markers. This coloring method is quick to dry and carries a nice finished look. The outer edge border was created from a single die cut! The large die in the set, sort of looks like a ladder, is cut in half horizontally and snuggled in under the raised layer of DSP. Almost too easy and I really like the texture effect of the white on white look.
Available on August 1st, for a limited time, is the Color Your Season Suite.
