Scrunched Vellum Flower Card

Hi crafters!  I was having a play one day and ended up making some really pretty vellum flowers so I thought I would share the technique with you.  I think they are a lovely addition to the simple background card here.

The winner of this week's Wednesday Card Giveaway is:


Congratulations!  Please email me at to confirm your address and claim your card!

 The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning lovely. This sample is so floaty looking it just oozes romance and love, beats any Valentine's card in my opinion for what's its worth. Such a freezing cold morning and just got full feeling in my fingers - hence being a little later commenting on this stunning card. Will watch your tutorial a little later as I'd love to see how you turned this gorgeous material into dreamy romantic flowers.
Many congratulations to our newest Wednesday winner enjoy your special gift from our special lady.
Daily hugs coming your way Sue and have an enjoyable day whatever your plans... stay warm xxx

Beautiful card (made with the PO set I was lucky to win last time around) and love those crumpled vellum flowers. PC wouldn't 'do' sound today so it was a silent movies treat lol ! Thank heavens video was in true technicolour though. Thanks, Sue.
Hey pals - blessings for commiserations on losing dies, if you saw my craft room you'd wonder I don't lose myself - permanently. Did compromise, though, good end result.
Well done to Kiraneries on the card win.
And welcome to newbie Carmen.
Hugs to all and a good weekend.

Morning Sue,
Just watched the video with my morning coffee, although my young Labrador Dottie keeps bringing me her toys and would rather I play with her. Very delicate pretty card Sue, loving the flowers made of vellum and the wisteria card is one of my favourite colours. I ordered some Mocha and Papyrus card which arrived yesterday, so as it is a wet miserable day here I am going to make some cards using it.
Have a good day everyone

Tressa said...

Lovely card. I do like the use of vellum both as a background and as the flowers. It set me thinking about using some of the techniques I use when parching. I wondered about using my Polychromos pencils with Zest It to blend in a coloured vellum background with matching flowers and using an an appropriate coloured card for the main part. Food for thought. I just need to get the dies!!!

Pat l. No I've not booked the holiday. That got flung to the side this week after having my consultation at the ivf clinic.
Now that it's time this year to put my wee embryos back in after the cancer treatment last year we were told because I turn 43 in a few weeks we need to pay for the treatment. That was a bummer!!!
However we are planning a few days in Ireland for my birthday at the beginning of march if graeme doesn't get any more overtime flung at him lol xx

Hello Sue,
I've been a good girl and watched the video first! It's such a beautiful card today and the vellum just finishes it! I love how you have only used the Pacific Ocean set and flowers for the entire card. It's so effective! I love the vellum flowers too . I have used it for larger flowers like poinsettias but not on smaller ones! Something else to try!
Congratulations Kiraneries on your win! Enjoy !
Elaine I'm so pleased Andrew is making plans for when his treatment is over! That's great news! Not too long now!
Now ladies as to this treatment - Vick on soles of feet , socks on and go to bed! I cannot tell you if it works or not for two reasons! The first one is I haven't had a bad cold/ chest infection since I heard of it . The second being that up until a couple or so weeks ago I didn't have any socks!! Altogether now Awwhhh!! Other people find this funny , odd or both! However I bought new little wellies and had to have matching socks! I knew you just all needed to know that! Lol!
Yvonne - good to se you back . Have a good time today but don't wear yourself out!
Laine - missing you!
Tracy - nice to see you back with us again too.
Welcome Carmen!
Love to all lovely friends on the blog!
Pam we are international - we'd need to choose a meeting place with easy access for everyone! Should be fun !!!

Hello Sue
Bit late today, I've been gadding! I did however watch your video this morning to see how you put this stunning card together and enjoyed every minute. It's such a soft and gentle looking card and I love it. Your vellum nasturtium flowers are beautiful and thank you for the tip about backing the vellum to enhance the translucent effect, it would never have occurred to me. Thank you Sue
Tracy Stitt hope all goes well at clinic, expensive but so worth it.
Well done Kiraneries on you fabulous win, enjoy.
Pam and Tina T sorry you are both suffering with nasty coughs, I've been lucky so far but have my jar of Vicks and socks at the ready just incase!
Talking of socks, Myra you are the only person I know who's socks match their wellies! It's not normal.
And Maureen I have duly noted your concord remark, I'll have you know I have what is affectionately called a little button nose!
Steph, Lynn did comment yesterday about her win so don't worry she hasn't missed out on her lovely prize.
Love and hugs for all

Hello Sue,

Such a delicate and soft card today. I love using vellum for flowers and backgrounds. When used for backgrounds on dies, I think it gives such an ethereal look to the card. This is truly lovely.

I made this card for my dear friend Judy. I was surprised I had ALL of the dies and papers to make it. It has that wonderful ethereal look to it. And it most definitely looks better in "real life" than on the video. Thank you for your beautiful inspiration. I was very pleased with the finished result. Thanks, too, for your great video.

Hi Sue. WOW !!! This is a stunningly, gorgeous card !!! I really love everything about it, including the colours you have used. The Pacific Ocean background die is Sooo beautiful !!! The video is fab as always Sue. I really love how you have made the vellum flowers. They really add a beautiful touch of elegance to your card. I do, of course love the lace edged leaves to. I have this die set and use it a lot as it is one of my favourite leaf sets. Thank you for sharing this stunning card today. Lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x

Superb flowers Sue on a very pretty card, I would prefer it in a stronger colour though.
Congratulations to Kiraneries on her win, enjoy.
Tracy, I wish you all the best with the ivf my dear xxx
Maria, and all those with ailments get better soon and huggles for you all.
I am in lots of discomfort, not helped by being out of my anti inflammatory meds due to yet another mix up.
Also heard the other day that if we go back k to Blackpool then we have to let the lady know and she will make sure we are looked after so maybe we will give it another try.
Managed to make two cards today so that's a start. Need to make hubby a Valentine's and my friend some anniversary goodies so will be busy this week.
Also heard back from one of my new friends so hoping to see her this week too :)
Better go as it's rather late.
Sending love n hugs to you all xxx

Absolutely beautiful card, love the colour and the delicate flowers. I don't have any of these dies but I do have some vellum and pearls so I'm off to watch the video to see how they're made.
Congratulations to Kiraneries on your card win.
Take care everyone.

Hi Sue,

Just watched your video showing us all your tips and ideas. The nasturtiums' die is gorgeous. Another must have for my collection.

Beautiful card, and just love the Wisteria card. I am still to find a supplier of this lovely card. If any of you Bloggers know where I can buy the wisteria colour card, I would be very grateful.

Thanks Sue for all your inspiration as always.

Love Dorothy
