🙙 Embossed Vellum Card 🙚
I hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.
Today I am here to show you this pretty butterfly card that I made for a wedding card.
I wanted a classy feel to the card and I like how the silver embossed clusters of flowers turned out on the vellum back ground.
Also behind the vellum layer, there is a piece of the Glassine sheets that are from Stampin' Up's Sending Love suite. This layer gives a subtle pattern to the vellum.
The Glassine sheets that were used are unfortunately now being retired by Stampin' Up, but they are currently reduced in price until I believe May 31st. (I will leave a link to them down below)
Here is how I made today's card.
Card base - Very Vanilla card stock 11 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches (29 x 14 1/2 cms)
Score @ 5 3/4 inches (14 1/2 cms)
Smoky Slate card stock - 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches (14 x 14 cms)
Glassine Sheet Layer - 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches (13 1/2 x 13 1/2 cms)
Vellum Sheet Layer - 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches (13 1/2 x 13 1/2 cms)
A scrap piece of paper to die cut the three butterflies.
First thing I did was I embossed the piece of Vellum.
Using the stamp set Birthday Blooms from Stampin' Up and a Versamark ink pad.
Stamp the largest flower cluster stamp into opposite corners on the piece of Vellum.
Sprinkle over Silver Embossing Powder and then using a heat tool, set the embossing powder and make it sparkle.
One point I did learn when embossing Vellum, is to use the lower heat on the heat tool and to continuously move the piece of Vellum Paper around so as not to give any one area the full heat from the heat tool.
Once your vellum sheet has dried and cooled. Attach it to the piece of Glassine Sheet using glue dots.
Place a glue dot in each corner as you will be covering these, when you complete the finishing touches.
To attach the Glassine/Vellum piece to the piece of Smoky Slate card stock, use glue dots and place them again in the corners so that you are not making any more marks than you have to.
Cut a piece of ribbon; long enough to wrap around to the back of the Smoky Slate card stock.
Attach this ribbon across the centre of the card front; securing with tear and tape.
Tape each end to the back.
Now you can die cut your butterflies out using the Butterflies Thinlits Dies set, from Stampin' Up.
Time to build the card -
Using dimensionals, attach your card front to the Very Vanilla base.
Attach your chosen butterflies to your card front. The largest butterfly on the centre of the ribbon and the other two butterflies towards each corner.
In each corner, add enamel dots. I have used the diamante dots that Stampin' Up were selling but are now retired and the other dots will be available from June 1st. (The photo does not do these new dots any justice. They are so so pretty)
I also placed 5 diamantes down the largest butterflies body.
A beautiful card fit for a Wedding or any other special occasion :)
