Design Team - Make it Monday: Vellum Flowers

Hello everyone!
Mae here for Make it Monday
Today, I'm going to show you how I made vellum flowers using the
CC Design Christmas Light Bulb Border Die.
These are the things I used:
Glossy Accent (or any liquid glue of your choice)
Distress Ink Pads (color of your choice)
Petal Roller
3D Foam Adhesives
Dauber & Foam Mat

1. Cut the vellum paper thru a die cutting maching with the CCD cutter.
2. Stain each bulb with a dauber using the ink / color of your choice.

3. Let it dry.  It's take a while for vellum to absorb ink.

4. Using a molding/ shaping tool, shape the un-inked side of the bulb.  Be sure your ink is dry so it won't transfer to the foam or molding mat.

5.  This is how it will look like after shaping.


6. Cut each bulb and adhere them to dimensional foam adhesives like so.

 7.Apply a drop of Glossy Accents or any clear liquid glue of your choice before adhering the second layer of petal. Offset the second layer from the base layer.

8. Adhere a sticky half pearl in the middle. You can also drop a small amount of clear glue before placing the pearl.

And here's the card I made using the Vellum Flowers!
