Beneath the cover

This is another card I made for the mini VSN challenges going on through June 13. You can find more information HERE! Robyn challenged us to use vellum on our cards. I have several different vellums and actually pulled out a different piece to make this card - one that had words and images printed on it. I cut a bunch of different card stock and pieces of vellum, but just couldn't make that card look good. So I started over and decided to go with a simple vellum overlay instead. Funny thing is, I love the finished card! I should've just kept it simple from the beginning, I guess! I ran my vellum through the CB with the swiss dots folder to get the polka dots. The vellum piece is trimmed slightly smaller than the stamped background so you can see just a touch of the original color.
