Happy Birthday Vellum

Vellum has worked its way back into the crafting industry.  Do you remember using vellum years ago?  Today it is so fun to create with vellum because we now have embossing machines to create texture.  Different art mediums add to your cards and scrapbook pages.  This darling card was created using embossing powder.

Let’s get started making this adorable card.  Betsy first cut layers from vellum using Lovely Layers die, and heat embossed various images from Round Repeats with white embossing powder.  She sponged ink onto the back of the vellum die-cuts to create soft colored petals.  Next she layered them up and secured them with a brad in the centers.

The front of the card was created by layering the Chevron Vertical die Cover Plate over a piece of  Clear cardstock.  The back is made from Aqua Mist cardstock.

The vellum flowers with the clear card front really give the card a light and airy feel.
