Graceul Glass Designer Vellum

The Graceful Glass Designer Vellum comes in 6" x 6" sheets - 2 each of 12 single-sided designs.  It can be used in so many ways to add a beautiful accent to your card or project.  There is a Graceful Glass Suite of products on pages 164-165 of the Annual Catalog that pair so nicely together, and the stamp set and thinlits can be purchased in a bundle to save you 10%.

For my sympathy card I cut one of the pieces to measure 5 1/2" x 2" for my layer, leaving me 2 more pieces from this one sheet that I can use on another card.

You can color your vellum on the back side if you want to add more dimension, but for my sympathy card I left it the way it is.  I just added a piece of Whisper White Card Stock to the back of my cut piece, and layered this onto a piece of Basic Black Card Stock.  To adhere the vellum I used my Tear & Tape Adhesive.

In addition to my vellum layer, I embossed my Lemon Lime Twist card with the Garden Trellis embossing folder, and I colored my flowers using my 2017-2019 In Color Markers, and placed them onto my card using Dimensionals.  My sentiment was punched out with the Banner Triple Punch.

"A Birthday Note"

When I saw the stamp set, P.S. You're the Best, it brought me back to my high school days when we still used typewriters.  Nothing fancy, no framelits or thinlits that coordinate, but just a set that I knew I wanted because it brought back a lot of memories.  I really like the simplicity of the card below, and it was really a quick, easy card to make.

Broadway Bound Suite

The Broadway Bound Suite on pages 68-69 of the Annual Catalog is a great suite if you like to make bold, bright birthday cards.  The stamp set and coordinating framelits can be purchased in a bundle to save you 10%.  There catalog also shows you some really cute cards and projects you can make using these products, and the card below is one that was offered at my July stamp classes.

When you cut out your large framelit you will get both of the pieces you see in my card.  I used both Basic Black and Whisper White card stock, and I have an extra large black piece and an extra white framed piece left for another project.

Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper

So many options when you cut pieces of your Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper.  Using one of the 12 x 12 sheets in the pack, that I cut into several different shapes and sizes, I was able to make 12 cards with one sheet.  The card posted below is just one example of how pretty it is, and how you can cut it up.

To put my cut piece onto my card stock I used my Silicone Craft Sheet, a piece of a Stampin' Sponge, and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I clipped my sponge onto a clothes pin, placed some of the glue onto my craft sheet and dabbed the sponge into the glue and then rubbed it on the back of my paper.  I find this is a really easy, and not messy way to adhere your fine paper and is good for any small embellishment. 

I added my sentiment, punched it out with the Classic Label Punch,  and a few pearls for more embellishment.
