I wanted to make a card using vellum and some new brush markers I bought from Amazon. I know a lot of YouTubers use Zig Clean Brush markers, but they are expensive, and I really try to keep cost in mind for viewers when I buy products. I had done some research on which are the best brush markers in 2018, and the brand I bought were number one. And even better, I got sixty of them for a little over $20. I can’t say they are remarkable, but they worked just fine for the project.
I had been thinking about how to take an entire sheet of vellum and put a big background design on it, then how to attach it to the card without seeing a lot of glue. It occurred to me that if I made the vellum bigger, I could basically wrap it around a piece of card stock almost like covering a book. I have to say, that was my favorite part of making this card. It looks really unique. A friend had asked for a floral card, so I made this for her and although it isn’t super floral, I think she’ll like it.
