Spotlight Vellum Wedding Card


I saw this brief video on Facebook about the Spotlight Vellum technique and knew immediately I had to save it and try it soon. I just received this gorgeous wedding dress stamp which is part of a set from The Ton and thought it would be perfect for the technique. I love how the card turned out! The wedding dress image was stamped on vellum and also on a scrap of white cardstock. I fussy cut the image on the white cardstock. I also stamped the Congratulations and the floral bottom of the skirt from the same The Ton Wedding Dress set. I used Archival black ink so it dried very quickly on the vellum. I attached the vellum piece to a pretty dp from Ken Oliver. As shown in the video, the white cardstock dress was attached with temporary tape to the back of the vellum dress image, then permanent adhesive or glue is applied to the back of the white piece which adheres it to the bright designer paper. The temporary tape piece is then removed. Very easy to do but oh so effective! 

I am entering this card in the Stamp It challenges at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday and Simon Says Stamp Monday challenges and at Craft Stamper Magazine.
