#18 Card Making for Beginners - Quick and Easy cards with DSP and vellum

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog today. Thanks so much for dropping in. Today we have the 18th instalment in my Card Making for Beginners series and we are going to be making some really quick and easy cards using some DSP (patterned paper) and stamped vellum.

Once again I have used the fabulous Feels Like Frost papers. As you can see I have made my cards into sympathy cards (needed to make a few for my stash) but this design could suit many different occasions - winter birthdays, Christmas, thank you etc.

The vellum is secured behind the panel and on this one I have disguised a couple of glue dots with some Frosted Epoxy Droplets - I added them after recording the video!

That paper is so lovely - and it is great the way it coordinates with so many colours of card stock in the Stampin' Up! range.

The sentiment I have used is from the Peaceful Moments set which is so versatile with greetings for so many different occasions.

If you'd like to see how I made these cards, so that you can recreate them, you can watch my video tutorial by CLICKING HERE or on the image below.

Thanks for joining me today. Back soon with more crafty inspiration.
