CAS Vellum Baby Card

The challenge this week at CAS-ual Fridays is to complete a CAS card with acetate or vellum.  The biggest part of the challenge for me, was digging out the vellum!  I used to stamp with vellum often and even have a few packs stashed away.  It has been at least ten years since I have made a card with vellum.  Now that I have managed to bring the vellum packs to the front of the paper stash, I am sure you will be seeing it more often!

I stamped the giraffe and saying on my vellum in white and then colored the giraffe from the back with my Copics.  He started out really light in color...but got a little brighter as he dried!  My main photo shows his tail as really dark, the below photo is more of the true colors.

Supplies are by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

1385 White Daisy Cardstock
Snips & Snails DSP by Doodlebug
Stuffed Friends by Sweet Celebrations
Saying by SU
Z891 VersaMark Ink
Z673 White Embossing Powder

Ribbon by Hobby Lobby
