EMBOSSED VELLUM SNOWFLAKE

At the October Stamp-In, my girls created an elegant card that incorporated the new Winter Wonder Embossing Folder and Vellum Cardstock. A truly striking combination. Wouldn't you agree?






Vellum is so tricky to adhere to any surface without the adhesive showing through. 
An easy fix for that is to hold the vellum in place with washi tape.

The inside of the card:


If you would like to try YOUR hand at re-creating this card, here are the list of supplies and directions:

SUPPLIES:
Flurry of Wishes stamp set (page 116)

Island Indigo cardstock
Whisper White cardstock
Vellum cardstock

Island Indigo ink

Big Shot
Winter Wonder Embossing Folder (page 37 of the Holiday Catalog)
Basic Rhinestones
Washi Tape (I used a silver stripe)

DIRECTIONS:
Fold a 9" x 4 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.

Run a 4" square piece of Vellum Cardstock through the Big Shot inside the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder.

Center the embossed piece onto a 4 1/4" square piece of Island Indigo cardstock. To hold the vellum in place, use your choice of washi tape by tearing off a strip of the tape and wrapping it over the four corners, securing the vellum to the card. Stick the ends of the washi tape onto the back side of the blue cardstock. Add a Basic Rhinestone to each of the four corners, centered on the washi tape. Adhere a larger Basic Rhinestone to the center of the snowflake.

Mount this finished piece onto the 4 1/4" square card base.

Inside the card, in Island Indigo ink, stamp the sentiment and one of the snowflakes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set.

  2. Such a beautiful card! I love the idea of using washi tape to hold it down. Vellum is a tricky material to hold down otherwise. Pinned.
