I am enamored by the lovely stained glass look when using Stampin’ Blends behind images on the Graceful Glass 6” x 6” Vellum. It’s a soft, lovely effect that lends itself to be a beautiful sympathy card. To achieve the bolder colors, color one layer and let it dry. Then go over it again. This will darken it up. One tricky thing when working with vellum is trying to keep the adhesive from showing through. For this card, I put Mini Glue Dots where each bird is. The coloring on them hides the glue. The vellum is adhered to a larger piece of Whisper White and the Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon is attached to it before popping the layer up on Dimensionals. I chose a delicate, small sentiment to balance it.
