Red, White and Blue…

Hello everyone! I’m here today with a Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #169: Vellum Overlays.  I’m so late in posting this card.  I couldn’t decide what I wanted to create for this challenge.

So, I picked the colors that I wanted to work with first.  Since July 4 is this Friday, I decided to go with red, white and blue.  Once I knew that, I saw it fitting to use PTI’s Cover Plate: Stars Die.

After figuring all of that out, I needed to see how my vellum piece would look attached to my card.  Once I added it, I realized I didn’t have a sentiment on my card.  That’s when it hit me that I should add the sentiment to the vellum and in silver for an extra pop.

Yes, that turned out neatly!

Take a look at my card:

I attached my vellum with two bronze brads.  I must me honest, when I decided to add brads, I knew for sure I had silver ones.  Well, I such everywhere and I could not find them.  So, I decided to us the bronze brads and I like it.

What do you think?  Don’t be afraid to let me know, good or bad.

  1. This has such a fabulous graphic look, Kymona … so beautifully softened by the vellum overlay … the pop of silver on the sentiment is perfect! Thanks so much for popping by my blog and leaving me some sweet words … it’s much appreciated … and meant I could come here for a visit and enjoy your wonderful cards! Anita 🙂

    • Hey Anita! Your welcome. I loved your card. Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment. I made this card in the we hours of the morning. I’m happy how it turn out.

    • Yes, I was trying to get in the spirit of 4th of July, lol. I had that star cover plate and wasn’t sure how to use it and then the light bulb went off. Why do we have supplies that we have no clue what to do with them. I think we see them and love how someone used them and when we get them we have forgotten what to do with them. Well, that happens to me. LOL. Thank you Taunya for supporting me. I really appreciate it.
