Card for a man...

Wow another hard card to make but I think I have managed ok...
The card is for 

Catch the Bug Challenge

Make it monday

I do try to enter this one weekly

Although not completely happy.. 
Well you can see the tape through the Vellum !!! 
you couldn't earlier...
and then POW its there....
I only put a little bit of dst on anyway but look !!!

A little annoyed.. 
I also made a little mini tag... just in case there is a pressie to go with the card

There a close up of the cute little brown car...
The Vellum is from a card magazine, 
I am using up papers I have stashed in a huge bag..
I have a lot of Vellum, as don't usually use it,
Now I know why.

So if anyone can tell me how to use it, so you don't see glue through..
would be of much help..

right I had best get of this PC, 

Thanks for stopping by xx

Fab colours Claire.

Vellum can be a pain - even the DST specially made for it show through. If you have a fair bit to use up why don't you try attaching it with brads or eyelets at the corners, then you don't need to use any glue/tape at all.

Lovely card.

Hello Claire, I really like your card - the colour and theme are great. Vellum is a bit of a pain to attach but it would be such a pity not to use it as the effect can be very good. I've used brads to attach each corner, and also transparent sticky dots, again at each corner, which I then covered with gems or card candy. You could also try attaching it with DS tape and then covering this with a strip of design paper, ribbon, lace, braid, or punched card to disguise it. Hope you'll find one or some of these suggestions helpful. BTW, I popped over from MIM site. Elizabeth

The card is perfect for a man. Besides the great ideas given by others for using vellum, I have cut the background paper just a little bigger than my vellum and use a corner punch. It makes a nice frame for the vellum piece. You can also place the tape under the cardstock the car is stamped on and it is hidden. Good luck on the MIM challenge.
