Vellum is beautiful, but a few of the challenges with it are:
- Stamping and coloring on it (because of the coating on the paper, it takes forever to dry), and
- Adhering it so you can’t see the adhesive.

As paper crafters, we hate wasting paper so I have another tip: Make TWO cards at a time to most effectively use your card stock. You can cut the frame from the center of one color and use the outside edge as a matte for your Designer Series Paper for the other card (watch video below):
The In the Moment stamp set works perfectly with the New Horizons Designer Series Paper and with these sentiments, I can imagine sending it to a friend to encourage them to take some time off from the hustle-and-grind. They are excellent reminders that self-care is also taking time to unwind!
