Pretty Vellum Wednesday - a little late

Good morning Prettie Peeps! Sorry I'm late this morning, technical difficulties here with missing camera chargers, broken card readers, etc. I really hate moving...but I still love my new house!

Ok, that off my chest. 2 weeks ago Christi challenged us all to make a card with vellum. Surprisingly, I actually did FIND my vellum. I like using it, but never seem to remember I have it. I decided to make a wintery card, even though we're enjoying our lovely California summer still (and swimming in the pool EVERY day now that we're home again!!) If I had been able to, I would have loved to photograph this card in front of the about irony!I used one of my FAVORITE Prettie sets for this card, Snowflake Kisses. It is such a fun and versatile set with Sophia and Snowflake making snow angels, these beautiful mittens and some fun snowflakes and sentiments. I also used some gorgeous Heidi Grace Designs DP I picked up in the Pretties Boutique a while back when Christie had it on clearance. It has a lovely shimmer and sparkle to it...and the back side is a pearly white for the inside of my card. I wrapped that in a vellum card, and attached them with my ribbon.Of course I had to use lots of glitter on my mittens as well...hanging there on the hook just waiting to go play in the snow. For those of you roasting in warmer climes, you can dream of icy cold snowstorms to cool off, then enjoy your sunshine while you've got it! Have a wonderful wednesday, and be sure to check out how all the other Prettie girls used vellum in their creations by using the links to the right!


  1. Super cool card Jana!! hee hee! Seriously, I love the design and pretty sparkly mittens! :)

  2. Very cute. I like how the vellum is in the background. When I've used vellum I have trouble getting it to stick without having the glue show through. This card avoids that issue. I'm assuming your glue is below the matted image.....

    love the snowflakes!


I love reading your comments, thanks for leaving me some love!
