Vivid Vellum

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

Hopes Bloghop Badge photo HopesBlogHop_Badge_2_zpsebe1df8f.jpg

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. 


Thank you for joining the Club Scrap Hopes Blog Hop and stopping at my blog.  I you would like to see more of my card creations from the Hopes collection check out the Club Scrap June Scrap Wrap, page 18.   Here is a link to you next stop with Janet.  Here is a link back to the hop start at Club Scrap Creates.

  24. I love how vellum gives such a beautiful, muted glow to our projects! I had not used it in many years but I've been inspired to dig it out of the bottom of my drawers!

    Blessings,

  25. Hi Debby! I love your warm autumn palette and use of vellum. I have some, I love it, and yet I haven't begun playing with it. I want to thank you also for the shout out at Club Scrap. I noticed a few folks coming over from there and I really appreciate that.
