Vellum-Bridal Shower

Hello Friends,  First let me apologize for the poor photo.  This was one of those days where I was a tad rushed.  Someone asked me at school to make a quick wedding card that they needed the very next day, so I didn’t get the chance to play around with the lightning. I assure you that the bottom of the wedding dress does indeed have a vellum panel overlay, as the challenge is in fact to use vellum this week over at Just Us Girls.  The dress is something I quickly sketched and traced, the EF makes a nice touch to the dress don’t you think?  I used a MS punch to create the bottom scallop and the white flowers are also made with a MS punch as well. The sentiment is heat embossed on vellum and is from Stampin Up.  I added a piece of ribbon, some hearts, and rhinestones and I was finished.  I have seen many variations of a wedding dress like this over on Pinterest, so the original idea is not my own.

Please come on over this week to Just Us Girls and check out what my fabulous team and guest Aileen did using vellum too!  Take care, Nancy
