Cherry Blossom Birthday on Vellum

I made another card for the Just Us Girls challenge which required the use of vellum anywhere on the card. This is very similar to my previous card. I love the look of stamping or embossing on vellum. I think it gives a card a touch of elegance.

My first step was to cut a panel of vellum and stamp my cherry blossom branch in black ink and emboss it with clear EP.  I did the same with my sentiment. The dragonfly is a die cut which I adhered to the vellum.  

Next, I cut a panel of pink card stock to the same size as the vellum panel. The vellum was then adhered to the pink panel. I added a ribbon along the left edge. This was then adhered to my white card base with dimensionals and my card was complete.

Here are the products used:

Card Stock:  vellum, GKD Pure Luxury white, GKD Bubblegum Pink
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps:  Deep Red Cherry Blossoms,  GKD Scripty Sayings
Dies:  IO Dragonflies
Other:  Ribbon, adhesive, dimensionals

Thanks for visiting!

Another stunner, Olga. I love the soft pink background, I'm so partial to black and pink together. Embossing on vellum is always beautiful. Another great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along with us once again this week over at Just Us Girls!!
