Hello, Gaylynn here. Today, I am sharing an idea for using heat embossing and ink blending for a vellum overlay card technique.
For certain, this floral vellum overlay card technique was fun to make and it turned out pretty and soft looking.
Have a beautiful day.
I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
In summary, these are helpful tips on how to make a card using the vellum overlay card technique. To begin, make a background or use patterned paper. An example, heat embossed a script background in white onto white cardstock. Then, add ink blending. Next, stamp and heat emboss onto one side of heat-resistant vellum paper using a sentiment and florals or stamps of your choice. I used white embossing powder. Also, trim or die-cut the background panel. Then, fussy cut (cut out) the edges of one side of the flower stamping to make a border. Next, adhere the background panel to the card base using foam tape. Finally, hide flat double-sided tape behind the flower stamping and adhere the vellum over the card front, to finish.
Here is another look.
Also, other tools include quality vellum paper and distress oxide ink, embossing ink & powder.
