Papertrey Make-it-Monday #169: Vellum Overlays

Hello! I have a quick card to share for Danielle's Make-it-Monday using vellum overlays on your card. I pulled out my awesome Doodlie-Doo set, did a bunch of coloring (makes me feel like a kid again!), and then made a vellum tag using Tag Sale #5 as the overlay. I embossed one of the Doodlie- Doo images and sentiments on the tag using white Filagree embossing powder. Tied it up with a sparkly blue ribbon. The coloring took a long time - the rest was done in minutes!
Do you use vellum on your cards often? I usually struggle to use it on a card - not sure why. Maybe this challenge with help me to pull it out more often. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is SO pretty! I love your coloring! I have this set but have not colored with it yet...I may have to now that I've seen your card! I don't use vellum often either, but I do like the soft touch it gives a card, and you used it beautifully on this card! :0)

  2. Hi Susan :) this card is stunning! Now I feel like playing with this set. I love the colors you chose. I don't often use vellum either, but every time I see it used I promise myself I am going to experiment with it.

    Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog. To answer your question, I used one of the files from the silhouette online store. I don't remember the name (and I'm nowhere near my machine right now.) but if you search for 'sunray' you'll find it. Let me know if you can't find it, and I'll look it up for you.

    1. Thanks for the info on the sunray file! I found it and purchased it. :) Your coloring of the Doodle-Coo card is what pushed me over the edge to buy the set. :) So glad I did!

  3. Wow! The coloring is amazing! What a happy card!

  4. Wonderful coloring, Susan!! You are an inspiration!!

  5. This is gorgeous! Amazing coloring skills!
