Stamping, Embossing and Coloring on Vellum

Hey there! Today I'm sharing a card project I created for CutCardStock stamping, embossing and coloring on vellum.

I love vellum! How about you? There are so many ways you can incorporate it in your projects and the product that CutCardStock carries is fabulous! It is nice and thick and I had no problem using the heat gun for the embossing.

Gold Embossing Powder

Permanent Markers

Frame Dies

Double Sided Tape Adhesive, Foam Tape, Pearls

Vellum Panel

A piece of vellum was cut to 4 3/4 x 6 1/4 inches. I stamped the floral image in the center with VersaMark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

The floral image was colored on the backside of the vellum.

I die cut a frame for the vellum panel by taping 2 dies together and making one cut out of gold glitter card stock.

The frame was adhered to the vellum with double sided tape and trimmed around the edge of the frame.

Card Base

Cut a piece of basis white card stock to 10 x 6 1/2 inches, score a 5 inches along the 10 inch side and fold in half. This forms a 5 x 6 1/2 inch card base. The front of the card is covered with a piece of 5 x 6 1/2 pink card stock.

Another piece of basis white card was cut to 4 3/4 x 6 1/4 inch and adhered to center of card base.

Finishing the Design

My framed vellum piece is adhered to the card center with foam tape.

A sentiment was stamped, die cut and adhered with foam tape.

Pearls completed the design.

I hope I’ve provided a little inspiration for you to give stamping, embossing and coloring on vellum a try.

As always, we would love for you to connect with us over on the CutCardStock Facebook Page and the Facebook Group Creating with Card Stock for more inspiration.
