Practical Scrappers: Ten Things - Vellum

I joined the Ten Things Team this week over at Practical Scrappers to help them come up with 10 Things to do with Vellum!
 
I chose to TEAR IT!
 
 
I started this card with a Early Espresso cardstock base.  I then tore approximately 3/4" strips of vellum to layer from the bottom up, creating a slightlyt ruffled look.  I used snail (mono) adhesive to secure it to the card base.  I just kept layering and layering.  Once you got 2 pieces on, you couldn't see the adhesive through the vellum.  I used a piece of washi tape at the top to cover the adhesive and give the card a finished look.
 
The Crumb Cake shape and Calypso Coral flowers come from the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit by Stampin Up!  I just love this kit!  I layered 3 flowers to create this look.  I then added in a Sycamore Street Button tied with White thread. 
 
Then I stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso ink! 
 
I just love how this card turned out and I hope you do too.  Be sure to visit the Practical Scrappers blog so that you can see all of our other ways to use vellum today!
