Vellum Layered Big Thanks - Simon Says Stamp November 2020 Card Kit

 Good morning! I'm back to share another card using with the November Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Big Thanks Autumn! This kit is full of beautiful autumn themes and perfect for saying thanks so many ways! The included stamp set by the same name has beautiful fall floral images and sentiments, there is some GORGEOUS pattern paper,  acetate toner sheets and foilpreprinted sentimentssequins - not to mention the cardstock, envelopes, and more!

As often happens, this card started off with one plan, and changed a bit in the process to something a bit different than I planned in the beginning - that ever happen to anyone else?

I started off by stamping that large fall floral cluster off the top and bottom edges of a trimmed rectangle, as well as stamping the sentiment. I then had fun coloring it in with Copics...but when it was all done, I just didn't love how bold and dark it was on the stark white paper. came a piece of vellum to soften it up a bit! Voila! Here is a look at what's under the vellum:

To attach - and hid the adhesive - on the vellum, I used a thin bit of score tape under the sentiment, then added a few wraps of jute twine, ending on a twist on the front, then wrapping it around to attach it on the back. A bit of a cleaner look than a bow, and it perfectly covered that adhesive. Score!

I finished off by mounting the entire panel with foam on a white cardbase - leaving space for that twine to fit around the back as well.

Here is a closer look at the entire kit contents - you can find all the details HERE:
