How to Use Vellum with Dew Drops

Hello Robin’s Nest Fans,
Karen here to share a quick and effective technique of combining vellum over Dew Drops.  This is the first time I used vellum over Dew Drops. I simply love the subtle and blended colors created by adding the vellum overlay.   I recommend using brightly colored Dew Drops as the color will become slightly muted when covered by vellum. Let me show you!

Directions:
1. Die cut a floral heart frame onto white pearl cardstock. Place the frame over a piece of white cardstock and lightly trace around the heart shape.  Begin to plan out the spacing of Dew Drops by filling in the heart shape.  When you are satisfied the arrangement and balance of colors, glue the Dew Drops in place with liquid adhesive.

(Notice the difference in the intensity of the colors where the vellum is covering the Dew Drops.)

2.  Adhere a piece of vellum over the back of the heart shaped opening. Apply foam tape to the back of the floral frame which will allow for the depth of the Dew Drops.  This is needed to create extra depth and will allow the Dew Drops to fit without pressing against the vellum.


 

3. Adhere the Dew Drop filled heart to the back of the frame.

4.  Use white card stock to emboss a floral background and adhere it to a white card base leaving a narrow boarder.

5.  Adhere the dew drop heart floral frame to the center of card.
Other Supplies:
white pearl cardstock / vellum / white cardstock
floral embossing folder
floral frame metal die
die cutting machine
card base 5×7″
liquid adhesive / foam tape
