This week over at Seize the Birthday they have a new challenge, this time you must use Vellum or Acetate on your birthday card, I chose Vellum, I'm also linking this card to the AAA Cards #53 "Anythig Goes" challenge, here is my card.
Some time ago I bought THIS starter kit, I've seen several amazing cards on Pinterest using Vellum or Parchment and I wanted to try it. This kit comes with everything you need to get a taste of this beautiful way of embossing on Vellum.
This design is one of the 7 that come in the instruction booklet, the only difference is that, instead of embossing the sentiment, I stamped it with SU white craft ink and carefully heat emboss it with clear embossing powder, the rest of the design is traced with the white gel pen that comes with the kit and, using the stylus, I carefully embossed it from the back, with a flipping motion, just like when you do a check mark. I colored the leaves with SU Certainly Celery but the flowers were left white, their pink hue is from the piece of soft pink card stock in the back.
The little bow is from my stash and I placed it on one of the beautiful, SU Very Vintage Designer Buttons with a glue dot, the piece of retired pattern paper is from Stampin Up! but I don't remember which collection it belongs to.
Here are the banners that inspired this card.
Thank you so much for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
