Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #169: Vellum Overlays

Danielle Flanders is up for this week's Make It Monday over at Papetrey Ink (here). She made a beautiful card  that was very inspiring ...

I liked her card so much that I pretty much used the same elements that she did - patterned paper, vellum, decorative element, vellum overlay (of course!) and a die cut.

Since those gorgeous Life is Beautiful butterfly dies are still out of stock, I had to make do with the one in the Signature Series. I must say that I still love that stamp with the gorgeous sentiment. I stamped it on a die cut Spring Moss butterfly. I inked up my stamp with Aqua Mist, stamped off twice and then loaded up the stamp with Versamark to finally stamp the die cut. Love the way it turned out! I also decided to add some texture to my vellum by dry embossing it with the woodgrain impression plate.

P.S. I kind of hated to cover up my pretty patterned paper with vellum! I don't remember ever liking a collection of patterned papers as much as Fancy Pants' Be.Loved valentine collection.
