A Little Bit Of Vellum

Good Morning!  Here we are winding down 2013......I can not wait to 'turn the page' and welcome in 2014.  Don't get me wrong, 2013 was a wonderful year, I am just ready for a new start, a change in direction, clean the slate, a fresh start. 

But while there is still some time left in this year I entered another Challenge card at Flourishes #251 Vellum, to add a bit of vellum to your project.

This card was inspired by Pinterest.  What did we ever do before that site appeared?  lol

I used a little Vellum Envelope I had in my stash.  I think I originally bought them to send my garden seeds to people.  This particular one I added many stamped sentiments from various Flourishes stamp sets.  They include such sayings as; Happy, Thinking Of You, Shine, Happy Happy Joy Joy, With Thanks, etc. stamped in all different colors.  The designer papers are by My Mind's Eye; Stella & Rose, Mabel.

Flourishes stamp sets; Anemones, Autumn Blessings, Chrysanthemums, Dahlias, Mountain View.

Added some Baker's twine and some turquoise rhinestones to finish it off.

Okay now I need to go clean my house so I can get back in that craft room.

Happy New Year all!


  1. What a cute idea! The colors on the DP are sweet and just seem to go with the whole idea. Your amazing girlfriend!

  2. This is so creative & beautiful! Thanks for playing along in my vellum challenge at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday.

  3. Super cute, and what a great idea to put all the little sentiments inside. Love it!!! Great dp too, love the colors.

  4. Super-duper cute. Background paper, colors, design and all those sentiments go together so perfectly.

  5. What a darling vellum envelope, Donna! Those papers are sweet too! I am so glad you could play along with us, again, for our Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge! :)

  6. I have quite a negative feeling towards vellum...however seeing your card gives me it really doesn't, because I know I'll still mess it up! Anyway, that's me and definitely not you, your card is darling and you can't even see how you attached it to the card! I think I need vellum therapy...anyone offer that out here in cyber land??

  7. Love this idea Donna...I like Barbara have a love hate relationship with Vellum. I love to use it but never know how to adhere it. So glad I stopped by or I would have missed this terrific idea!
