Vivid Vellum

Welcome to Club Scrap's June Blog Hop using the Hopes Collection!

As soon as I saw the Hopes digital collection I knew I wanted to make a hybrid card.   The hybrid card I'm sharing is made using both traditional card making methods and adding digital elements printed at home. 

The background is a digital collage printed on cream and vellum cardstock.  In a happy accident I learn that layering the same print on paper and vellum results in a more vivid image as seen below in a comparison to the cream cardstock image alone.

Photo corners attach the vellum to the card.  I stamped the greeting strip and added pearls for a little shine.  To finish I added a vellum envelope, again made using hybrid methods.  I recolored a Hopes digital paper to have a slightly darker hue and printed it on vellum cardstock.  Then I made my envelope using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board (available from Club Scrap).  I was able to get just enough opaqueness to hide the greeting.  Supplies are from the Club Scrap Hopes Collection (traditional and digital) with added pearls, Club Scrap Earth Hybrid Ink, and dimensional adhesive.
