Make It Monday #169: Vellum Overlays


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and a vellum overlay.

I LOVE the look of vellum but it can be tricky to work with.
You have to disguise the adhesive.

I was looking to design a few 4th of July cards. I am not sure they will sell, but I sold a fair number of St Patrick's Day cards, so...

I used the large Rick Rack die. I would have used my Chevron die but to be honest, I had a PILE of these Rick Rack ones I had cut for something a while back, so I used them!
Lazy AND frugal ;)

I used all 3 sizes of Seeing Stars dies. I cut 2 of each of the larger ones in vellum and 1 small one in white glitter paper. The glitter paper covers the adhesive on the vellum ones.

You cannot tell in the picture but the MM arrow has the sentiment stamped on vellum and is adhered on white card stock. Just so it stays in place.

God Bless America! The land that I love!

Thank you for looking at my blog!
