Better late than Never... ATS Vellum Challenge

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Hi all! I was wanting to get this done on Tuesday night for the ATS challenge on Wednesday, but it just didn't happen! The challenge this week was to use vellum and as much as I absolutely "NEEDED" that product when I first starting crafting, I hardly ever use it on cards, so I was stumped on how to add it! I went with a pretty basic concept of putting a darker color behind it and then embossing with a cuttlebug folder for some fun texture. I love this pumpkin cuttlebug folder, especially with Christine's adorable Sugarplum Cow Emma.

I try not to use adhesive with vellum (I hate when it bleeds through and I've never bought the actual Vellum Adhesive).... so I attached it with some copper brads for a pop of metallic on the card.

The fence border is the Martha Stewart Crooked Fence border from last year... I just love that to make a super easy little scenery for my figures to stand in front of.

I'm still finishing packing up today-- hopefully the kids all cooperate!! We leave pretty late tonight, so with luck, I'll get everything done that I need to.

Have a great weekend and I'll have a couple of posts pre-posted for the weekend for Farm Fresh Friday at TGF and Review Friday at All That Scraps! So even though I'll be away, I'll still get to play! :)
