Stencilled Vellum Card

I was watching a video by Gina Krupsky from Gina K Designs and she showed how to stencil on vellum. I just used regular dye ink but the vellum did need to be heat set for the ink to stay put. The vellum was layered with the inked side at the back so as to provide a softer appearance. A second stencil was used to ink a second piece of vellum and that was attached to the back of the lattice die cut so the vellum pieces could be separated by a thin later of foam tape. 

The lattice die isn't one I would use for this again - the holes reflect the paper behind and since that is a mix of vellum, it wasn't the best choice. I just cut the oval glitter insert to be large enough to fit inside the largest oval, not to cover the entire back of the lattice piece. That is why all the little gems are on the front!
