Recently I was visiting my mom, and she had a card on display made by my sister several years ago. I picked it up to examine it because I'd noticed that she had used vellum on it. To be perfectly honest, the vellum didn't look just too healthy in that the torn edges had all curled quite unattractively. This had happened because the piece of vellum had been attached to the card front with brads, leaving too much freedom for the edges to curl.
I liked the look of the torn vellum, took a photo of the card, and decided I was going to create a card with the same look, but with the vellum edges covered.
