Just For You Card - Reverse Masking
Stampin' Up: Number Of Years Birthday Card

Vellum Balloons With A Touch Of Sparkle

While I had some of the Saleabration patterned vellum out, I decided to punch a few for this card.  That vellum is no longer available but you could use the silver or gold fancy foil vellum from the annual catalogue. 


Tips and Techniques: I think the challenge with vellum is hiding the adhesive.  I didn't completely succeed with this one.  I used glue dots and you can see them in a few spots.  I've had some success before with spray adhesive but it is rather messy so I tend to go for an easier option usually.  I coated the balloons (and the wooden greeting) with Wink Of Stella clear - to disguise the adhesive a bit, and because I'm currently brushing it on anything and everything! 

Some other finishing touches - silver thread for the balloon strings and a row of 3 scored lines as an added detail.  Love my score board for adding a subtle background detail. 


Happy Stamping!

Cheers, Sue
