Midpost of Ch. #109 Simply Create Too Blog Challenge - Thank You

I was so lucky that the following card was easy to make. I had been working through On-line Card Classes class "Clear and Sheer" and had my array of patterned vellum across the table. I also had some lengths of quilling paper from a commission for Practical Publishing on hand. What was better than to bring the two together?

I added some MFT cutting dies, Wonky Rectangles and Many Thanks; metallic embroidery thread, cream pearls and some Nuvo Mother of Pearl Embellishment Mousse (rubbed over a piece of scrap watercoloured cardstock) for the sentiment die cut.

The vellum is gorgeous with its gold printed design and I only attached it in the centre underneath where the wonky rectangle would sit.

Because the embellishment mousse was rubbed over a piece of cardstock that had been coloured with Lemon Yellow and Alizarin Crimson Color Bursts, it produced a lovely salmony colour, which matched well with the flower centres.

Quick, easy yet fresh! A great combination of parts.   :)

Anyway, check out what else was created for the "Thank You" theme on Simply Create Too Blog Challenge here. Join along with the fun.

Bye for now,


  1. So beautiful Janelle, the quilled flowers with the vellum are pure elegance!

  2. What a beautiful card Janelle - love the quilling and the centre panel over that gorgeous gold enhanced vellum is perfect.


Thanks for your comment. I'm glad you've enjoyed my blog.
