very vellum

Seize the Birthday is playing with transparency/vellum this week (courtesy of Ashwini). Thanks for the great challenge. I chose vellum as it just seemed to fit the feel of my card.  Please ignore my slightly tipsy 'happy' ... guess it got into my martini from last time! Loved putting the stitching on this (it's a great way to attach the vellum), especially since this is one of the few things I've sewed lately that wasn't a mask! 

happy birthday

  1. That is a good way to attach the vellum! And sets off the pretty flower perfectly. Let's call the happy "whimsical", then it can seem like it was done on purpose. :D

  2. CAS superbly done. I love the look and design of this card. As Lindsey said, whimsical!

  3. Awesome CAS card -- I miss seeing stitching on cards -- looks great!

  4. Such a pretty CAS card Glenda. Love the white daisy on the vellum. Love your stamped background too.

  5. I think the happy looks great it seemed intentional to me and looks playful! This card is pure Glenda and Perfection! I adore it! Stay well!

  6. Love the zig zag stitching and clever way to attach the vellum, the embossed flower looks so crisp and touchable on the vellum too, gorgeous texture, Cathy x

  7. I absolutely love the stitching..and the grid background and the pretty daisy! Looks absolutely fantastic! Thanks for the great inspiration!
