I am proud to show my first project as a Practical Scrapper! Today's theme
was to use vellum 10 different ways. I opted to do dry and wet embossing on
vellum. Check out the Practical Scrappers Blog for more ideas on how to use
vellum on your projects! There are some really neat projects on there!
I used DCWV's Natural Stack for the pattern paper. I layered the vellum on
top after running it through the Script embossing folder. This adds a nice
amount of texture and elegance to a project. I especially like to do this
technique on wedding cards or sympathy cards. I also embossed the vellum leaf
with the Swiss Dot embossing folder in the flower spray (Wild Orchid Crafts Poppy Flowers).
For the sentiment, I used Versa Mark and white embossing powder. I really
love the look of embossing on vellum! I backed it with a piece of cardstock so
the sentiment does not get lost in the pattern.
To finish off the card, I punched out the borders out of the pattern papers
and used the Picot Spellbinders Die for the sentiment. I also did faux
stitching around the card.
I hope you enjoyed today's project. Remember to check out PracticalScrappers daily for projects and inspiration! Krafthead~
***TIP*** I like to use the Zig 2-Way Glue Pen to adhere vellum to a
project. It is virtually invisible and holds vellum well too :)!
