Using vellum as a background on cards adds a diffused softness that looks really pretty especially when adding heat embossing.
For today’s project, I started with a piece of heavy vellum 4 ¼ x 5 ½” and heat embossed a sentiment from Avery Elle’s Corner Sentiments-Holiday stamp set. I stamped it with Versafine Onyx black ink, then used clear embossing powder over it.
Using a guide that I stamped out ahead of time, I added the lines from the Mod stamp set from Avery Elle with Delicata Emerald Green ink. I added more clear embossing powder and heat embossed those. The Delicata is a pigment ink and dries slowly, so it works well for heat embossing. I also created a second panel using Delicata’s Ruby Red.
After all my stamping was finished, I adhered the vellum to the front of a white notecard using a Tombow Adhesive runner. For a really clean and simple look, you could leave it as is, but I wanted to add a little something more. I created a frame using some gingham paper from Photoplay’s Here Comes Santa 6×6 paper pad and a rectangle die. I cut a panel of the paper the same size as the front of the card and die cut the rectangle over it.
I used some Scotch foam strips to attach the frame over the front and sprinkled a few sequins for sparkle. For the card with the green lines, I added some Red Berry Nuvo Drops too. This card is a little bit modern, a little bit homespun. I think it would be great attached to some homemade cookies or bread. Thanks so much for joining me today!
