This is a convention swap card I made when I attended the Stampin’ Up! convention last month. I had an idea in my head about wanting to use gold embossing powder on vellum. I went over to Pinterest and found a design by Donna Mikasa that inspired me to create this card. I was very pleased how it turned out and loved the combination of Melon Mambo with the gold embossing powder and sequins.
Following are the directions to create the card and below is a video showing you how I made it.
- Use a card from the Note Cards and Envelopes.
- Stamp the largest flower from Flower Patch, a new photopolymer stamp set in the Annual Catalog, in Melon Mambo ink.
- Cut a piece of vellum 1 1/4″ wide and a little over 3 1/2″ in length. In my video I mentioned a couple of times I cut the vellum to 3 1/2″ in length. That is incorrect, this is the finished length. Cut the vellum a little longer so you’ll have some flexibility with your sentiment in case you didn’t center it when you stamped.
- Use the Embossing Buddy and rub it on the vellum.
- Stamp a greeting from Lots of Thanks using Versamark ink and use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to help center the sentiment.
- Sprinkle Stampin’ Emboss Powder in Gold and heat set it using a Heat Tool.
- Use 2-Way Glue Pen to adhere the vellum centered over the stamped flower.
- Use Crystal Effects and adhere three, single gold sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim to the front of the card.
