This week’s challenge is to put some wood or wood look to your project over at: Crazy4Challenges
I fell in love with this pink wood look paper from Michael’s Craft Store. I have used it on several projects. Here’s a little “keepsake” baby card I made for a friend’s granddaughter with this same paper on the front and inside.
Here’s the steps to how I made the card for this week’s challenge.
Step 1: The card measures 5.25″ x 7.25″. So score an 11 x 8.5″ piece of white card stock at 5.5″. Fold for a “book fold” and trim to the finished size. Cut a pc. of designer paper that measures 5 x 7″ and adhere to the front of the card. Using the largest die from the set below, cut an oval from pink card stock. Adhere this oval to the front of the card (centered). 1113 – Stitched Ovals
Step 2: I love the look of using Vellum with dies that have a silhouette pc. and an overlay pc. I think it gives them a sort of ethereal look. Plus, vellum comes in several colors, like pink, yellow and pastel blue and lavender. I used white and these two die sets. I cut 3 of the overlay (fancy one) and body pc. from white card stock. I cut 3 of the silhouette with the vellum. Then adhere the fancy winged layers to the vellum layers.
Step 3: I used a die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs that apparently has been retired. But it was called 901 – Daisy. I’m glad I got one because I love this set. But it is an older one. I cut 3 daisy silhouettes from vellum, 3 overlays and leaves from white card stock and the flower centers from pink card stock that I used for the oval.
Step 4: Using the die set below, I cut one bucket piece and 2 handle pieces from white card stock. I colored the bucket piece and 1 handle piece with PanPastel Silver Metallic. The other handle piece I colored only the beaded area with a Copic Marker and then cut the part away from the rest of the handle. Then I glued this piece to the silver handle pc.
Step 5: The sentiment is this die cut once with dark brown card stock and once from a little darker pink card stock then the oval. Glue the pink over the brown, slightly offset.
Step 6: Now just arrange all the above elements how you like them. Here’s another quick look at this card:
Thanks to YOU for stopping by for a look and here again is the link to the challenge. This one is fun because you can really make anything, with any theme, as long as you throw a little wood on it!

One thought on “Vellum Butterflies and Flowers”
What a beautiful combination of patterned paper, solid-colored paper and vellum.
