Valentine's Day blew past me, and I forgot to share my last Valentine project. I really wanted to try some vellum layering to create sort of a misty effect on this card. I've been on a mission to use up some of my Valentine-themed stash, so I went for my last few scraps of Crate Paper's Paper Hearts collection.
I went for traditional V-day colors and used a Blushing Bride card base and some Real Red seam binding that I dyed with a spray bottle and reinker. I stamped the flower images onto some vintage sheet music (love-themed, of course) in Blushing Bride, Real Red, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, and Tempting Turquoise and adhered the layer to my card base. I embossed the vellum layer with glitter embossing powder, embossed and sanded a scrap of printed paper for the card topper, and punched holes for tying my seam binding. A little white gel pen on the title, some pearls, and tada! I might have liked the image to show through a *bit* more, but I did use a heavy vellum.
This was a very fun card, and I need to use vellum more often in my projects. It's one of those card-making staples that I sometimes forget about.
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
