You don’t always have to use Designer Series paper. Sometimes it is just a matter of creating your own background and today’s card is an easy one but with a bit of wow too.
- I really like the Peekaboo Peach with Gold, this time it’s gold embossing. It’s part of a class I offered this past weekend on embossing techniques. Embossing on vellum adds a very cool effect. I stamped the sentiment from Thankful Thoughts on Vellum using Versamark, powdered with gold, then very carefully used my heat gun. Keep the heat gun moving, and keep it a bit further away than you might normally with card stock to prevent the vellum from melting. It will take a bit longer but you’ll be happier with the results.
- For the background I used the circle from Work Of Art stamp set and created my own polka dot pattern. I started with the three dots on the top and went from there, eye balling it the whole way down. I only stamped full dots first, then went back and added some partial ones on the sides.
- Attach ribbon all the way around the piece of vellum. I used tape runner to do this, then added more tape runner on the ribbon to attach to the card base. Washi tape from the Pick a Pattern to attach at the top. Final touches with some Gold Faceted Gems.
