Vellum Wrap Card

Hi all!
I've had these papers and matching vellum for a very long time and thought it was about time I started using it. Here's a card I made using the vellum as a wrap. I stamped a trees stamp from DRS Designs onto the paper and vellum but heat embossed the trees on the outer layer. I also stamped a freebie stamp from a magazine on the outer and heat embossed that. I finished off with a sentiment layered on my dies from The Works.
