Make It Monday #169

For several months I've had this darling dotted Swiss vellum in my stash in pink, green, and aqua and I didn't come up with an idea on how to show it off until today's PTI Challenge, about using vellum in a card.  I heat embossed the pieces of vellum with white, fussy cut them and attached them with teensy dots of Glossy Accents, which worked perfectly.  I was also prepared to use a new roll of 3M clear mounting tape which I think would also be really handy for working with vellum, but the card came together without it.

Paper: PTI Select White, hibiscus burst patterned paper
Stamps:  PTI Year of Flowers Rose, Everyday Happiness
Die:  PTI Journal Card 2
Dotted Swiss Vellum: purchased at Checkered Cottage in St. Louis
