Autumn Card with Leaf Windows and Metallic Vellum

Autumn leaves are so beautiful and vellum is a unique medium, so it wasn’t too difficult to form the idea to combine them for this card.  As you can see, I used leaf dies to cut three “windows” out of my front panel.  Then, I backed the windows with three different colors of metallic vellumred, green, and purple.  However, I used gold vellum on top of each of the three colors to give each leaf a bit more shimmer and warmth.  I love how it gave the perfect autumn tone to each color.
