VIDEO | Embossing On Vellum

Hello there, I am over on the My Favorite Things YouTube channel today sharing a card using the Winter Wreath set to create an embossed focal point. 

I started off my card by taking a 5" x 3.75" panel of MFT Blue Yonder Cardstock and blending around the edges with MFT Blue Yonder Ink. I then splattered it lightly with white gouache and set it aside to dry. I took the wreath image from the MFT Winter Wreath Stamp Set and stamped it on to MFT Heavyweight Translucent Vellum using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. 

I then adhered a piece of Stick It Adhesive sheet to the back of the vellum and die cut the wreath with the MFT Winter Wreath Die-namics. I stamped the 'hugs' sentiment from the set on to the blue panel and heat embossed in white. The blue piece was added on to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I then removed the backing from the adhesive sheet on the wreath and adhered that down, pressing with a bone folder to adhere it well. 

I took the sentiment from the MFT Well, Hello Stamp Set and stamped this on to MFT Black Licorice Cardstock with more Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder once again and heat set. It was cut in to a strip with the MFT Skinny Strips Die-namics and added to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Sparkling Crystals with MFT On-Point Precision Glue


Here is the video showing how I made the card:

Thank you so much for stopping by to see me today, I really do appreciate it. I apologise for my lack of posting recently, I am recovering from my latest round of migraine treatment and sadly, it has really affected me this time. I hope to be back next week though. In the mean-time, I hope you are well and you have a great weekend! Take care :)
