Vellum Cards - Thank you, Jennifer!

 Jenn McGuire recently did a post featuring vellum as a card base in all different ways - I was enchanted!  So as soon as I could, I gathered together my own supplies, a good many of which are retired,  and did a CASE of one of her cards.

supplies: heavyweight vellum, white, kraft, black, 2 blue-greens, Lipstick Red, Schoolhouse Red cardstock,  snowflake Snow Flurry embossing folder, Spellbinders Label die, Taylored Expressions Cardinal die, branch die, Tim Holtz Mini Holiday Greens dies, Spellbinders Joyful Christmas Sentiment, red glimmer foil, red stickles for berries

Jennifer had a great tutorial video which I followed pretty closely to construct my card.  Here's another card, using a different embossing folder.  I CASEd my own card from 2016.

supplies: heavyweight vellum, 2 greens, white, and gold cardstock, white glitter cardstock (star), a piece of blue polished stone from my stash, another Spellbinders label die, Simon Pinpoint Starlets embossing folder, Churches and Holy Couple star dies, Poppy Stamps Evergreen Trio dies, sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers clear stamp set, pearls

Jennifer also had ideas for using glimmer plates and foil, and stencils on vellum.  I can't wait to experiment some more - stay tuned!

Gorgeous vellum cards, Lin! I too watched Jen's video and loved what she did. Can't find my heavy weight vellum, though, so will have to wait... Meanwhile I'll appreciate your cards :)
