Birthday Vellum

Daydream Medallions, From My Heart, Stampin' Up, Sizzix, Big Shot

I saw a card on Pinterest the other day that used embossed vellum.  It was so pretty, and such a great idea – but I can’t find it now to give credit.  Here’s my take on the idea.

I used the Daydream Medallions set from the current Stampin’ Up! annual catalog with the Floral Frames framelits for the Sizzix Big Shot.  I stamped the images on vellum, then embossed with white embossing powder, before cutting the images out with the framelits.  I also brayed Pink Pirouette on the back of the medallions to add a bit of color.  The “Happy Birthday” stamp is from the set “From My Heart,” and I used the Bitty Banners framelits to cut that out.  I love the vintage faceted designer buttons when you want to “dress up” a card, but not overdo it.  The Delicate Designs embossing folder and a little Regal Rose taffeta ribbon finished it off.

I showed this to Mom today, and she loved it.  (And, trust me, she’s very honest if she doesn’t like a card!)  I had a feeling she’d like this one.  She’s “Clean and Simple” while I’m “Vintage.”  (Don’t tell her, but I made a card very like this for her.  I used the Lacy Brocade embossing folder at the top of Mom’s card with the Delicate Designs at the bottom, then added a little Whisper White organza ribbon as well as the Regal Rose.)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day.
