CFC #67 – Vellum Flags

June 16, 2012

Super simple card for CAS-ual Friday #67. For me, adhering vellum yet trying to hide the adhesive is a nightmare, which is why I love stitching the vellum in place. I colored a few pieces of vellum with copic markers and hand-stitched them to the top of the card. Can you believe this card took me nearly 3 hours to make?  Of course if I had a sewing machine this probably would take me 1 hour max.


A close up of the card. The flags aren’t completely adhered down to the card, adding a bit of dimension to the card.
