Have you seen the beautiful Graceful Glass vellum? It’s wonderful to work with. The card I will show you today features this paper and coloring with Stampin’ Blends.

The layout of the card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge. Be sure to hop over to the site and see lots of beautiful examples.

Design Notes for Graceful Glass Card:

When you color the Graceful Glass Vellum Paper, you can color on either side. The colors seem a little more brilliant when you color on the front, or the side where the black ink outline is. that’s the side I colored on for this card. I selected two different sheets and colored sections of them. After I finished coloring with Stampin’ Blends, I used one of the circles from the Layering Circles Dies to cut them out. The fourth circle is a sentiment from the Treat Time stamp set, stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

As much as I love the Graceful Glass circles, I think the part at the bottom really is my favorite part. I used Stained Glass Thinlits to cut some Basic Black Card stock. Black and white is always an appealing combination!

By the way, I used some Glossy White Card Stock to mount pieces of vellum. I think it adds to the crisp and clean look of the card. Finally, I put a little cutout from the Stained Glass Thinlits on the inside of the card.
