Hello. Gaylynn here with my Technique Time series. Today, I am sharing vellum embossing and creating a blue floral card border.
This technique creates a soft look that can be used on its own or over a patterned background. I used a premade background layer, but patterned paper would work also.
Sentiment: The world needs more of you.
Here are helpful tips for creating the vellum embossing. To begin, trim a premade background or use patterned paper. Next, stamp the flowers with embossing or watermark ink onto quality vellum cardstock. Also, I like Papertrey Ink vellum cardstock as it holds up to heat embossing. Next, heat emboss the flowers using embossing powder with color. I used blue. Then, cut (fussy cut) around one side of the florals to make a card border. Next, stamp and trim a sentiment panel. Finally, adhere all of the layers to finish.
Here is another look.
Finally, here is my video tutorial for this project. It will detail the full process.
