Thinking Of You - Stamping On Vellum Layered Card

Card With Vellum Cover
 Vellum seems so elegant to use on a hand-crafted card.  I love how what is layered underneath seems extra special.  This card is very simple to create, but in person still has a wow factor.
Vellum Adhered On The Fold Side
This card uses a 12" x 6" piece of cardstock, a 6" piece of vellum and a white cardstock diecut made with the Silhouette Cameo.   I spritzed the diecut with a mixture of CTMH Crystal Blue reinker, Create A Shade Pearl Paint and water to give it a bit of a blue tinge.  To make it easy to adhere, I ran it through the Xyron and made it into a gigantic sticker. This was then adhered to the card front.  The vellum was layered on top with a thin strip of vellum adhesive after stamping.
CTMH Thinking Of You Image From The Childhood Portrait Set
The image was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with white powder.  I used a white fiber (retired CTMH) on the fold side and tied it in a bow.

Even though this card is layered, it is not at all bulky.  The fiber adds a bit of dimension but would not interfere with any of the automatic postage sorting machines.  No additional postage would be necessary if it were a standard size.  Of course I didn't think of that until after I made it. :-)

Thank you for stopping by today!
