Written in the Raindrops: Doodlebug Vellum Love

Hellooooo and good morning! Court from Court's Crafts here with some vellum love inspiration for you!!

I got my inspiration for this card here. It is where the idea for heart shaped clouds came from. 

I needed some more thank you cards and couldn't find a spot for the sentiment that I liked. I gave up on it for the night and slept on it and then remembered the cute cloud with the rainbow drops that I had been wanting to use from the Springtime line. Then Teensy Type came to mind and I thought - why not put the sentiment in the raindrops! I got super excited! :) 

This may be one of my favorite cards that I have made recently! TIP: I cut the vellum and sugar coated cardstock hearts twice - one out of white cardstock and the other from the sugar coated cardstock and vellum. That way they would be thick and I could put foam dimensional tape behind them to pop them off without it showing through the vellum. The white dot vellum is adhered behind the clouds. :)

Of course that little bird has been on my mind to use. Isn't he/she just the cutest!?! 

The background just needed a little something so I thought - more vellum!!! I cut a white cloud with my die cutting machine, added a stitching row to anchor the card and voila!
