Vellum Techniques #5

Vellum almost begs to be made into flowers and it couldn't be easier with the Big Shot die cutting system.

I cut 4 medium and 2 small flowers from the Daisies die with my Big Shot. The petals were curled with a bone folder by scraping the edge the length of the vellum. Curl the medium petals under and the small ones up.

The hole in the middle of the daisy is really big, so I layered and adhered them to a circle of white card stock and used a 5/8 in. brad to secure them.

I stamped the sentiment on vellum with a Chocolate Chip Craft pad because it makes a more opaque impression which covers the image beneath better than ink. It takes longer to dry, so be patient. There is adhesive under the first word covered by a card stock cut out. I also used adhesive in the corner covered by the daisy. And, the wrapped linen thread holds the vellum to the mat at the bottom.
