Handmade Vellum Rose Card

Vellum Rose Birthday Card
         I find making cards for crafter friends very very difficult as I tend to worry too much about whether they will like it since they are crafters themselves and so talented! I obsess about every imperfection in my card and finally work myself up to such a level that I end up not sending cards to my crafter friends!
        But recently I managed to convince  myself that since I myself love all types of cards and loooove receiving  cards , that maybe my crafter friends will like my cards too !
        So this multilayered card was made for an amazing person...Shalini Mittal, the owner of Crafters Corner, the most amazing craft supply store in India  of which I am the DT !![I have written more in this post : Crafters Corner]
Vellum Card
This card has sooo many layers : card stock, handmade paper, pattern paper and lots of die cuts! The white oval is a clay embellishment I made and has tiny roses and leaves! Added texturing with shiny heart sequins, glass beads gel and a splattering of gesso!

The flowers and leaves were made by stamping on parchment/vellum with various Heartfelt creations stamps.
Handmade Flowers
Also added a few handmade soft felt flowers , a heart shaped metallic buckle[ made with a Spellbinders die and metallic card stock] and a stylish " cherish" [made with a Tim Holtz die from Sizzix]


      Here is a closeup of a gorgeous crystal dragon fly and in this photo you can also see the shimmer of the inka gold I rubbed on in various places!


  It was a bit tricky to make the vellum rose from layers of heat embossed flowers but then in the end it turned out gorgeous ! What do you think my friends?

  31. I think this is such a multi-layered gorgeousness that anyone would love to receive. It's encouraging to think that you are hesitant to send your lovely cards to fellow crafters. I feel much the same, and my skill level is not nearly so expert as your own. This one takes a lot of looking to find all the intricate details, and I'm blown away by this vellum rose. So delicate and so realistic too. Loving all the layers, the soft colorways, the embellishments, and the design. Your friend will be just thrilled to have this beauty to brighten her day! TFS & Hugs
