I've returned to an old favorite for today's card. Several years ago when embossing folders first came on the scene, we would emboss vellum and cover the front of a card. I loved the look, but just forgot about doing it until today.
I began with Old Olive card stock, cut to make a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card and cut a piece of vellum 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". I then cut a piece of DSP (designer series paper) 4 x 5 1/4". The DSP shows through the vellum just slightly adding a slight dimension. A brighter DSP might add more to the look. Try some different ones to get the look you want. I used snail to attach the DSP to the front of the card. I embossed the vellum using the Manhattan Flower embossing folder and followed by stamping Thinking of You on the front. I used classic ink, but because it was on the vellum it stayed wet long enough for me to add some embossing powder. I like the look of the embossed sentiment, just
a little added touch. I used snail along the left side of the vellum and attached it to the card front. A simple wrapping of ribbon around and tying a bow completes a very simple but elegant card.
Sometimes the old tricks are the best tricks! Pull out some paper and try something old or new today!
