Layers in Purple & Yellow

This is a fun card with lots of layers. I've seen vellum being used again in some of the magazines so I used it here. It's been a while since vellum was popular so I'll give you a brief overview of using vellum before we start on the card.
Vellum is a thin opaque paper that can be a bit tricky to use. Any adhesive you put on the back of vellum is going to show through to the top side.
You can see here the strip of adhesive that I used to hold the vellum in place. The thing that you have to be careful with is the WHERE of putting the vellum. You want to be sure you place the adhesive somewhere on your project that will be covered up with other things, paper, stickers, flowers, etc. That is the only way that I am aware of so that the adhesive doesn't show. Of course, you can skip the adhesive and hold the vellum in place with brads, eyelets, or ribbon. Some times you have to be a bit creative to use the vellum but it can add a delightful dimension to your project.

Materials needed:
Elegant Eggplant card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"
Rich Razzleberry card stock 4 x 5 1/4"
Printed vellum (I've had this for years so I don't know where I orginally got it) 3 3/4 x 5"
Daffodil Delight card stock 2 1/2 x 4," 1 1/4 x 5," 3 x 3 1/2"
Patterned paper 2 1/4 x 3 3/4"
White card stock
Washi tape
Mixed Bunch stamp set (#125537)
Corner rounder punch
Blossom Punch (#125603)
Framelits Labels Collection dies (#125598)
Stampin' Dimenionals (#104430)
Rich Razzleberry ink

1. Adhere the Rich Razzleberry card stock on top of the Elegant Eggplant card stock. Adhere the vellum on top of the Rich Razzleberry. Remember to put the adhesive where it won't show later. For this card putting some right across the middle works fine.
2.Place a 6" strip of washi tape down the middle of the 1 1/4" wide Daffodil Delight card stock. Wrap the ends around to the back. Adhere this to the left side of the card about 1/2" from the left border.

3. Use the corner rounder to round two corners of the 2 1/4 x 4" piece of Daffodil Delight. Round the corners of the patterned paper also to match the Daffodil Delight. Adhere the patterned paper on to the Daffodil Delight card stock.

4. Run the next piece of Daffodil Delight card stock through your Big Shot machine with the Framelits die to cut the piece. Adhere it to the center of the card stock from #3.
5. Use Rich Razzleberry ink to stamp the image from Mixed Bunch set to white card stock. Use the Blossom punch to punch it out. Place Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the blossom die cut. Place it in the center of the Framelits die.
6. Adhere all of this to a card base.
