Awesome card with vellum.

Hello there! I am currently taking part in a Clear and Sheer Online Card Class, where the focus is on cards made using vellum and acetate in a number of ways. I am learning lots and there are some gorgeous card examples from all the teachers and guest tutors. If you haven't taken one of these classes before I can highly recommend it as you can access the content at any time and the quality and content is superb.

The first guest tutor is the very talented Yana Smakula, who showed us eleven different ways to attach vellum to cards, without the adhesive showing through. I have chosen to try out the first method, attaching my embossed vellum panel with glue dots and hiding them behind small embellishments.

My card background is some pretty floral paper from the "Hello Gorgeous" collection by My Mind's Eye. The sentiment is by Hero Arts and was stamped onto a panel of Bazzill 40 lb vellum using Versamark ink and heat embossed using Ultra Fine Antique Gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp. The tiny enamel shapes are also from the same My Mind's Eye collection and I placed mini glue dots behind these embellishments to stick the vellum panel to the card front. 

This was a really quick and easy card to make and will help to expand my card stash (which is sadly depleted at the moment). Thanks for looking.
