Make It Monday #92- Layered Vellum Die Cuts

I have had this card sitting on my desk for a few days waiting to be photographed and woke up to a heavy marine layer shutting out the sun (what the rest of the world calls "fog", we in San Diego call "the marine layer"), but decided I wanted to get this off my desk and linked over to the Make It Monday challenge to use Layered Vellum Die Cuts at Nichole Heady's blog.

I know it is the PTI Blog Hop day, and so hope to get back with another post this afternoon.

I love the softness vellum adds to a project and the way you call play with the colors & layers.

The first step was to cut a piece of scrap white cardstock with PTI's Tag Sale #4 die and a piece of pale blue vellum. I love using this die to make ornaments for Christmas cards this year!

I sandwiched 3 snowflakes and a few silver & blue sequins between the die cuts and glued the edges shut. A line of Glossy Accents was run on the outside edge of the circle and Martha Stewart Coarse glitter was sprinkled along the edge.

A bow created with Really Reasonable Ribbon's Diamond Satin Aqua ribbon tops off the ornament. You can just make out the third snowflake as it is the same pale blue as the front piece, so shows as a shadow.

A few other snowflakes were punched in teal and pale blue vellum and layered - as you can see, a couple are also glittered.

A piece of the Diamond Satin ribbon runs between the tag die cut and the sentiment.

This sentiment is one of the PTI Think Big Favorites #9 and inked with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink,  The designer paper for the base is from My Mind's Eye Merry paper pad.

Thanks for stopping by - hoping to check in again later today!
