PTI Make it Monday - Using Vellum

This week's Make it Monday from Papertrey Ink is to use vellum to soften a background pattern.  Lizzie has a great video tutorial and some pretty samples to illustrate this technique here on the challenge post.
I needed some wedding cards for my stash so decided that's what I would create. I recently purchased the pretty Luxe Foil Desigher Papers that are perfect for a classy card. The gold is a bit bright and shiny though - and layering the vellum on it softened it nicely.  I ended up making two cards using this technique.
 I gold embossed one of the sentiments from the Love and Marriage set onto the vellum and attached the vellum just along the top of the Luxe Foil paper with Vellum Glue Dots.  I layered the Luxe panel to a Brushed Gold Panel and than all of it to the white card base.
Here I've lifted up the vellum to show how bright  the gold is without the vellum overlay
I used another pattern in the Luxe Foil Designer papers for my 2nd card - along with two more stamps from the Love and Marriage stamp set.  This time I adhered the vellum with 3 tiny gold brads in the corner of the frame.  I also put some of the Vellum Glue Dots along the top edge.
And a view of this Luxe paper without the vellum overlay.
I love how both of these came out - a fun technique to soften a bright background.
Thanks for stopping by today!
