Bunch of Blossoms with Graceful Glass Background Video

Hello, Crafters.

Today's video is my 400th crafting tutorial! It feels really 
strange because I don't feel that I have made anywhere near
as many as that! Today's card is another example of using 
a non-picture design from the Graceful Glass 6" x 6" Designer
 Vellum as a background.

 I think probably most of us find the picture designs relatively easy
 to use, but the non-picture designs not quite so!  If you saw my 
previous video where I used this vellum as a background, you'll
 remember I used a die-cut THANK YOU but it didn't work quite 
so well with the busier pattern. 
 Video 398 HOW TO.......Heat emboss die-cts.
 As there is a large area of white area on today's card, 
 it doesn't matter how busy the pattern on the vellum is; they'd
 all work!  As I was finishing my card off while videoing, I 
forgot to decorate the inside of the card. I finished it after I'd
 finished the video, and you can see in the 
photograph above that I stamped a single petal.
I made another similar card before I started videoing, where,
 instead of making the coloured cardstock and vellum layer the
 bottom of the card, I made both pieces a bit smaller and added
 them to a Whisper White card base.............just to see what 
it would look like.  Please see the next photograph.
 I decided I preferred the original design and 
stayed with it for the video! I made this card using Poppy
 Parade Cardstock and Ink.
 I thought of another option which was to put a layer of Poppy
 Parade between the vellum and the Whisper White card base. 
Then I thought about using a Poppy Parade base for the card,
 and then to cut the vellum 1/8" shorter on allsides.
 By this time I decided to give up in case I thought of even more options! LOL!
 I hope you have a very blessed Sunday, and until tomorrow, happy crafting. 



  1. Hi Jan, these are all beautiful...

    Quite a few months ago you posted about how you used daubers and how you stored them with velcro and you labled each one with a color.. the color name may have been in the storage box... I can't find the post now... would you be able to point me to that post again? Thank you.

  2. Jan a great way to use the vellum because some of the patterns are quite difficult to do things with such as the chevrons. But underneath a beautiful stamped image as this flower it compliments the two parts of the card design. I love how you have adhered the flower image on a jaunty angle also Jan. Thank you for sharing this project with us crafters. :O)
