The image that we are working with today is on page 51. Incidentally, if you do not have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator or a catalog-please let me know as I would love to pop one in the mail for you and earn your business.
One of the reasons this image was chosen is because of the versatility but also because I love the layer of vellum and it’s ability to tone down the images in the background designer series paper.
It is amazing what a layer of translucent vellum can do for a card, it adds a touch of softness while simultaneously allowing the focal point to take center stage.
Bravo Vellum Cardstock! Bravo!
I would encourage you to try this on your next card and see what a difference it makes.
