Tip Tuesday- Vellum and a mini tutorial

Today I have another card share for you that I taught in my April card class.

It is a vellum card with a really cool embossing technique.

This card features the Swallowtail background stamp found on page 18 of the spring mini.  Item #129216 $16.95. LOVE LOVE LOVE this stampset.

I stamped the image with Black Stazon ink and let it dry for a minute.

Then I grabbed my Stampin Pierce Mat page 7 annual catalog item#126199 $5.50 and the Simply Scored Stylus page 181 annual catalog item#125624 $5.95.  I turned the image over to the backside and "colored" areas gently with the stylus.  If you push too hard you will break the vellum....if you don't push hard enough it will not emboss and turn white.  It is very easy to do...you just have to go slow and figure out what works best for you.

I then mounted the vellum to a basic gray card base with tiny silver brads.  The greeting is from the Loving Thoughtts stamp set found on page 133 of the annual catalog item#125845 $28.95

Here is a link to another post I did using vellum:
