Vellum Overlay

I got this great idea from Tami White. I haven't used vellum in a long time. It adds such elegance to cards I thought this would be the perfect card to give it a try.
Card Recipe:
  1. Card base of Vet Vanilla (4 1/4 x 11 folded at 5 1/2)
  2. Adhere strip of blushing bride DSP (1 1/2 x 4 1/4) from level  hostess packto bottom
  3. Use scallop border punch on piece of 1 1/2 x 4 1/4  blushing bride card stock. Layer on top of DSP.
  4. Folcal point is made of of 3 layers 3 1/8 x 3 1/8 blushhing bride (bottom). 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 layer very vanilla (this is stamped). Overlay 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 layer vellum.
  5. On the stamping layer create a mask using  large heart punch. Place in center of vanilla piece. Sponge blushing bride ink over edges of mask. Before removing the mask, stamp background in soft suede. I used bella toile. Overlay vellum & stamp image in soft suede. Adhere vellum with glue dots & cover with pearls to hide adhesive. Attach to blushing bride square and attach to card. Finsh with sentiment on Kraft card strip adhered with  dimensionals.
