#600 – Seize the Birthday – Vellum

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! The topping this time is one of my favorite – Vellum! There are so many many ways to use this spectacular, versatile medium – just check out the STB blog and you’ll know! 😉

Seize The Birthday - The Toppings

But, if you not a fan of vellum like I am, you could definitely go for a project without it, just make sure to make it birthday themed, and join us!

Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

Here’s my inspiration for you –


This card uses a simple scripty background, I used Cloud9 Border Patterns stamp, white heat embossed over kraft cardstock panel, over which I adhered vellum, on which I white heat embossed Penny Black Dazzler images. These images are so pretty!! The sentiment, both stamp and die, are from Paper Trey Ink Good Times. I used paper from an old book for the die cut sentiment. Foe embellishing, I used some pearls.


You can be sure to find some more amazing ideas from our very talented Surprise Party Guest Anita Bowden and the rest of the creative DT over at the Seize the Birthday blog. So, do play along! 🙂

I am also submitting this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Anything Goes

  1. What a fabulous background you’ve created, Ashwini! The embossing on vellum is gorgeous, especially over the script stamping. Love it!

  2. This is so elegant, Ashwini! I thought first your base is some rose gold paper! Beautiful effect of vellum on kraft!
