Trend Watch: Sheer & Clear

My crafting day was not as productive yesterday as I'd hoped but I did manage to get a card done for the current Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge: Sheer & Clear. 

For this card I used some thick vellum by Neenah. It's the UV Ultra II Translucent Vellum 36lb Cover. It's thick enough that it can be die cut easily and it can even be embossed without cracking much. I'm not sure if it's available in small packs online anywhere or only in reams of 250. Working in a print shop professionally gives me the ability to play with a lot of different stocks including this one.

I'm hoping to do some crafting today too and with any luck I'll be back to share something later and I'll manage to get a few pieces done for the challenges I'm hoping to join in on this week too.

Happy Crafting!
