PTI Make it Monday #210

Over at Papertrey Ink their Make it Monday challenge is to use Vellum to soften up patterns.

I need a graduation card for my cousin and figured I could use it to make an elegant and not traditional type of graduation card.

 Here I am setting up my supplies.

I am using Stampin UP ink in Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist, Mossy Meadow, and I also brought in Lost Lagoon later.

I am using Naturals Ivory by Stampin Up for my card stock.

 I set up all my flower and leave images on to acrylic blocks to make stamping faster and easier.

I am using a Papertrey Ink stamp set called Ruby Reprise.

I also cut some flowers from Masking Paper and used my Cricut Spatula to help remove them.
 The left piece is my tester and how I figured out what not to do.

The right is the correct way.
 I used the Stampin UP blender pens to help color in my not so centered stamping.
Using Stampin UP Vellum and some Sticky Strip and Multi Matte Medium to adhere the panel.

The Sticky Strip is on the back, I cut the Vellum 1/2 inch wider then my panel and score at 1/4 inch on each side to fold over the panel.

The Multi Matte Medium is put on tiny dots behind the pearls.
 My card base is made of 110 lb white card stock from Micheal's.

I added a 1 inch strip of black scrap to the left side and then added some cream Fun Foam cut 1/8 inch smaller then my stamped panel.
Finished card, the sentiments came from My Favorite things stamp set called Complimentary Greetings.

Pearls from Micheal's brand, I clear embossed my sentiment, I used Versa Fine Black Onyx ink.
