Online Card Classes, Clear & Sheer, Celebrate

Another card for the fabulous Clear & Sheer class.  I've had this beautiful gold-striped vellum from My Mind's Eye for quite a long time.  I bought it because I loved it!  So glad to finally have a way to use it.

I used Altenew's Beautiful Day stamps for the flower and leaves and Bazzill heavy weight vellum.  I stamped one of the inside layers of the flower with a Tsukineko ink called Brilliance in Galaxy Gold.  Then I stamped the outline of the flower in Versafine Onyx Black and sprinkled it all with clear embossing powder from Simon Say Stamp.  Did the same with the leaves.  Heat embossed and hand cut them out.  The sentiment from Celebra'tions is stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed Ranger superfine detail in Gold.

I cut the gold striped vellum and a piece of acetate using a banner die from JustRite.  My machine just doesn't have the right layers, I guess, to emboss the acetate.  It just barely shows up in real life.  I attached those to the black card stock layer with my Tiny Attacher.  I colored the staples with a gold pen (sure can't have silver staples on this card!)

Finished up with some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  Thanks so much for taking a look!
