Vellum Cards.

Hi everyone.

Those of you who visited my previous post will know that my friend, Angela Bode, has sent me some vellum from America and since it arrived I am having a lot of fun making cards using some of the vellum on it.  At the moment I'm busy making a lot of cards for charity and I want to share three of the cards with you.

The first card was inspired by cardabilities #94 by Karan Gerber.  I have only recently discovered the cardabilities challenge and love Karan's sketches - really some great stuff there.


The sentiment is in Afrikaans and says:  'Best Wishes'.  The lovely little wooden arrow was among some goodies that Angela has included in the parcel with the vellum.

The second card was inspired by the layout of retrosketches #20.  And you'll see another of the little arrows Angela has sent me.



The sentiment says 'Congratulations' and the arrows stamped at the bottom is part of the 'Borderline' stampset by Verve.

The last card came about just playing around with some elements till I got a pleasing result.

 
 
The sentiment says 'Enjoy your birthday'.
 

All the bits and pieces of dp are by Teresa Collins.
 
 
I have made quite a few cards already for my charity project and I might share some more with you later.  In the mean time, have a lovely Sunday.  I'm off to make some coffee as it is already nearly 4 o'clock in the afternoon in South Africa.
 
Kind regards
Petra
