All About Layering 3 - Project #5...

Hi! Today's card is based on Day 1 of Altenew Academy's All About Layering 3 class taught by the amazing Lydia Evans. Lydia layered a die-cut vellum frame with a card stock frame for a beautiful look. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any suitable frame dies in my stash. The thing I noted, however, was that the vellum softened the look. So I decided to think a bit out of the box and use vellum behind a die-cut sentiment. Here is my card.

I took a panel of white cardstock and stamped the flower from the Cross Stitch Flower set by Altenew in the lower right corner. I die-cut the Simple Hello sentiment from the top left of the panel. I took a small piece of vellum and drew diagonal lines with a matching Artist Marker. I adhered the vellum behind the 'Hello' and stamped a companion sentiment from the set below with matching ink. Here is a closer look at the sentiment.

To finish, I simply popped the panel on foam tape and adhered it to a red card base. Here is another look at the card.

I love the way this card turned out. I used the Cross Stitch Flower and Simply Hello die for the first time. I found the layers a bit tough to line up. But it is doable with a little practice. And the end result is gorgeous! I made 4 panels in different colours with the same set. I will post the cards as I make them.
