Vintage Embossed Vellum

Hi everyone, I would like to share a card with you that I made, inspired by a card Julee Tilman made by embossing vellum and inking it to give it a vintage feel.  I loved the look of the embossed vellum over the DSP to give it hint of colour behind.  I have put the instructions below on how I made this card.



Stampin’ Up “Flower Patch” and “And Many More” Stamp Sets
Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads – Pool Party, Island Indigo, Baked Brown Sugar and Memento Black
Cardstock – Naturals White, Basic Black, Pool Party
DSP – Subtles Paper Pack and Flashback Paper Stack
Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
Decorative Label Punch
Flower Fair Framelits Dies
Pearls Basic Jewels
Basic Black Candy Dots from the Neutrals Pack
Linen Thread
Basic Black Chevron Ribbon
Distressing Tool
Double sided tape
Stampin’ Dimensionals

Cut a piece of A4 Naturals White Cardstock in half lengthwise
Cut 2 pieces of Basic Black Cardstock 10cm x 14.3cm (1 for inside of card)
Cut 1 piece of Naturals White Cardstock 9.5cn x 13.8cm (for inside of card)
Cut a piece of Pool Party DSP from the Subtles paper pack 9.5cm x 13.8cm
Cut a piece of Vellum 9.5cm x 13.8cm
Cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock 6.4cm x 8.9cm
Cut a piece of Pool Party DSP from “Flashback” paper stack 5.9cm x 8.4cm
Cut a piece of Naturals White Cardstock 5cm x 14cm for leaves
Cut a piece of Pool Party Cardstock 6cm x 6cm for flower
Cut a piece of Naturals White 5cm x 9cm for sentiment

Fold the piece of Naturals White Cardstock in half to create the card base.

Distress all the edges of the DSP and Cardstock pieces apart from those pieces for the flower, leaves and sentiment.  Sponge all edges with Baked Brown Sugar ink.
Put the piece of Vellum in the Argyle Embossing Folder and put it through the Bigshot.  Adhere this to the piece of Pool Party DSP 9.5cm x 138cm with some double sided tape, the DSP should now be completely cover with the colour reflecting slightly through the Vellum. You only need to put the tape in the corners and a small piece half way on the sides.  Adhere this to the Basic Black Cardstock mat and then lightly sponge Baked Brown Sugar on the embossed vellum to give it an aged look, go lightly with the sponging.  Create two folds in the Basic Black Chevron Ribbon on one end and also create a flag end on the ribbon.  Adhere this to the embossed Vellum and Basic Black Cardstock piece about 3cm up from bottom of this piece.  Adhere this to the card front.

Adhere the distressed DSP from the Flashback Paper Pack onto the Basic Black mat.  Stamp the sentiment in Black onto the Naturals White Cardstock and punch out using the Decorative Labels punch.  Adhere to the top right corner of the panel piece, making sure that it is behind the panel with only the sentiment showing (you do not want the entire punched piece showing).  Adhere this to the Vellum card front over the Chevron Ribbon.

Stamp the flower image in Pool Party on Pool Party Cardstock and then stamp the flower centre in Island Indigo.  Stamp the leaves in Memento Black on Naturals White Cardstock.  Cut out using the Flower Fair Framelits.  Ink edges with Baked Brown Sugar.   Make a bow with the Linen Thread.  Position the leaves, Linen Thread bow and flower on the small panel.  Add three Basic Black Candy Dots to the top right of the card and a Pearl to the flower centre.

Inside of card – mat the Naturals Ivory (make sure edges have been inked with Baked Brown Sugar) onto the Basic Black.  Adhere to inside of card.  You can decorate with a strip of DSP or by making another flower.
