This is one of those you must see in person. Somehow the depth, warmth and softness of the vellum falls apart in the photo, but here it is …
I made this 5×7 card from navy blue cardstock. I added a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than the blue and then covered it in a piece of vellum from Webster’s Pages. I cut an additional piece of vellum from another portion of the same sheet and added it to the top left. The effect is soft and warm and really, really beautiful.
Next, I added a piece of ribbon from Making Memories. Then, I stamped the bird and nest (from the Crafty Secrets) using Memento Ink onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic Markers. I cut them out, inked the edges in Walnut Distress Ink and then attached them with dimensional foam. I then stamped the saying with Staz-On.
It’s a perfect birthday card, don’t you think?
