Good morning everyone. Today is a day for another BS & J Challenge. This time we have a Vellum Challenge.
OK, I will admit. This was my (bad) idea. I have rarely used vellum because I really have no idea what to do with it. For some unknown reason, I decided to make myself do it. You know I am a big fan of quick and easy cards. This was not a quick and easy process. The card itself was not hard to make. It was just the figuring out part that was. I tried a lot of different ideas that were in my head that all ended up in the trash. Thank goodness for other talented Demonstrators and Facebook! I finally ended up CASEinng (Copy And Share Everything) a fellow Demonstrator named Kelly Acheson (thank you Kelly). She even did a video on how to make this card. Kelly used a different stamp set and coloring medium and her cardstock sizes were a little different but it is basically her design.
To make this card I used the stamp set called Peaceful Poinsettia. This is a stamp set that is in the 2018 Holiday Catalog. I used my Stamparatus to make this card because you need to line up the Vellum piece with the inside piece. I first stamped in Versamark and then sprinkled White Embossing Powder over it and set it with my Heat Tool. Then I flipped the Vellum piece 180 degrees and repeated the embossing process. I left the stamps in the same position and stamped on a 2 1/4″ x 3.5″ piece of Whisper White cardstock with Memento Ink. Then I flipped the cardstock and stamped it again.
I colored the piece of Whisper White cardstock using my Dark and Light Real Red and Dark and Light Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends. I backed this piece with Basic Black cardstock ( 2.5″ x 7.25″ folded in half) and adhered this to the inside of the Vellum making sure I lined everything up.
Here is what it looks like in front of a piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock.
This is what is underneath the Vellum.
This is the inside of the card.
