Catered Crop Recipe Swap - Vellum

Hello friends!  Linda has a new Catered Crop Recipe Swap challenge for us that I think you're going to love!  Here's the challenge description, straight from Linda...
Have you noticed how popular vellum has been this summer? Vellum just adds a soft, sweet and gentle light to your projects. I can’t wait to see what you make.
For this challenge, just add vellum to your project.
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, August 2.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.
  • Check back with us on August 3 to see if you’ve won an opportunity to be a guest designer.
Our fabulous designers will be back on Sunday, July 27, with their creations. And, I’m freaky excited to announce our newest Catered Crop designer, Stacey Schafer from Stacey’s Stamping Stage. If you don’t already know and love her, you sure will in the weeks to come.
As always, I’ve curated a ton of projects and tutorials here at a Pinterest board, Vellum, where you can find the links to all these projects and more.
Sometimes I struggle with vellum.  I think the struggle comes when I'm forced to use it!  LOL  Because other times I'll be working on a design and think "oooh, vellum would be PERFECT here!"  But this time, my design idea came together, and I just love how it turned out.  I hope you do, too!
Here's my card...
Catered Crop vellum
I started out with a piece of Primitive White card stock from My Favorite Things and stamped it with the BG Sheet Music background in Steel Blue hybrid ink.  Then I took the Die-Namics Rose with Overlay and cut out the rose from the bottom right corner of the card front.  I added a piece of vellum against the back of the card front, using some invisible vellum adhesive.  With another piece of Primitive White card stock placed on an adhesive sheet from MFT, I  die-cut the rose again.  This put a perfect layer of adhesive on the back of the rose, and after removing the negative pieces, I was able to remove the backing and place the die-cut rose in the space cut from the card front.  I added a Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX flag cut from Steel Blue card stock and stamped with a sentiment from CS About Sympathy in Steel Gray hybrid ink, and a yellow seam binding bow.
When the card is closed completely, it looks like this with the Banana Split card stock inside showing through the vellum...
