Simple Birthday Card Using Vellum


It’s Sunday morning here and snowing like it’s the first day of winter!  It seems that there is no end in sight to the snow and cold weather.  I decided to make a card using up some of the pastel vellum that I have, hoping to inspire the feeling of Spring!  As long as I don’t turn around and look out the window, I can believe it is finally a beautiful spring day outside.  The card base is white cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.  Everything else is made using vellum.  The white vellum was embosses/die cut using the Marianne Design folder.  It’s hard to see in the picture but the vellum is embossed with roses.  I used the MFT Die-namics leafy flourish and flower trio.  The butterfly and border are Martha Stewart punches.  The birthday sentiment is a die from Simon Says Stamp.
