Friday Vellum Video

Honestly, I don’t know WHAT to call this one because it’s really about the pieced background BEHIND the vellum and how we attach vellum.

Do you know someone who loves purses? Do YOU love purses? Do you have a favorite purse? What color is it? Does it have a handle?

Ann’s made a couple different versions of this card over the past 16 years, but I think I like this one the best. (The others were pink and black.)

We just love it! And everything old is new again.

The cake (sans lovebirds) can be used for a birthday
Using the pick & omit method with a marker, the Congrats could be used for something else
Don’t you LOVE the circle of leaves?
