The first card is this pretty baby pink one. I made it for a cousin who’s celebrating her daughter’s first birthday today in fact! So it’s all pretty pretty pretty. I used pink card stock and stamped the sentiment right in the center. Then placed a vellum sheet over the card stock, stamped this beautiful filigree design on the top and heat embossed it. I finished with some accents like the bow, a couple of die cut dresses and a foam cake sticker with beady candles.
Finally I tried my hand at embossing vellum and this too was a success. Using one of ItsyBitsy’s embossing folders, I created a pretty design on a small piece of vellum. I combined it with some ItsyBitsy pattern paper and embellished with a bow, craft flower and some brads. The card is for a friend’s birthday so the sentiment was short and sweet.
Vellum is really versatile and stylish. It gives an elegant touch to any craft project and can be used to add dimension, texture and originality to your creations. It can be particularly effective for any ‘white on white’ color scheme or wedding cards as well. What are your thoughts about vellum. Drop a line and tell us all about it!
