A Blog Named Hero's current challenge (ending tomorrow) is "Vellum." I decided to make a vellum card for a friend of my mom's who had a baby recently.
After stamping my greeting with Lawn Fawn's "Riley's ABC's" onto a piece of pink cardstock, using Stampabilities Bright Pink ink, I cut that into a strip. I also cut 2 patterned papers from the "Paddywack" 6x6" pad by Recollections. Because I was creating my card from vellum, I didn't want the adhesive showing through the other side. So I taped my patterned papers & greeting strip together as they would go on the card, and traced the outline onto a white cardstock panel. I cut along the lines with my paper trimmer, and created 2 additional panels.

For the focal image, I die cut another oval from white cardstock, and glued it to the back of my image oval. Finally, I adhered it to the card front. I glued down 3 pink buttons from my stash, and this card was finished!
I'm also entering this card in Incy Wincy Designs' "Buttons & Bows" challenge.
