Garden Treasure on Vellum Birthday Card

Recently I decided to stamp a lot of my stamps on vellum so that I would have them to create quick cards.  I stamped Altenew’s Garden Treasure on vellum and heat embossed it with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder and then colored it with Copic Markers from the back.  I like the way it turned out.

One thing to keep in mind when coloring on vellum is that the colors are pretty muted from the front, so pink darker colors than you normally would.  Also, the coloring doesn’t look so good from the back, but it really makes a pretty card when you turn it over.  Also, keep in mind that if you are layering multiple die cuts you will see all of the image behind the vellum.  It makes for an interesting collage, but still pretty.

I decided to adhere my vellum flowers to a rectangle cut a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle from Gina K. Designs Turquoise Sea 120# Cardstock.  Ranger Multi Medium Matte was added to the lines of the embossed image to adhered them to the focal image panel.

The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs Birthday Greetings and was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with the same embossing power.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back of the focal image panel for added dimension and then it was adhered to the front of a side folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.
