Next I took a sheet of green cardstock from the Bountiful Harvest by Core’dinations collection and cut that down to 4”x5.25”. I used a basic leaf die to cut three leaves from the left hand side of this panel.
Next I got ready to stamp and heat emboss. Vellum tends to be very slippery and will stick to your cling stamps so you’ll want to make sure that you’ve got it securely held down with either magnets (if you’re using a stamping platform) or low tack tape. You also want to be certain to use your anti static tool liberally.
I used a Momenta stamp set, Versafine detail ink in Onyx Black, and Ranger embossing powder in Gold Tinsel. The key to heat embossing vellum without warping it is to first get your heat tool nice and hot and then heating from the back before moving your heat tool to the front. You also want to make sure to keep your heat tool moving and not let any one area get too much heat.
After I finished heat embossing I applied double sided adhesive tape to the inside of the flaps I created with my scoring.
Next I took some leaves that I’d die cut (the red from a scrap of paper from my stash) using papers from the Core’dinations Bountiful Harvest pack. To give them a more realistic look I went around the edges with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain.
I played around with the leaf placement (without adhering the vellum) until I got a look I liked.
I set the vellum aside and adhered three of my leaves.
I wrapped the vellum over the front of my green panel, flipped the panel over, removed the backing from the double sided tape, and adhered the vellum to the back.
I turned the panel back over and stuck the orange leaf on top of the vellum
Turning that green panel over yet again I decided to use these adhesive foam dots by Darice to lift
the panel up a bit. I like this particular type of dimensional foam because it’s low profile enough to not
create too much bulk when you send it through the mail yet not so low profile that you can’t really tell
I placed the foam dots evenly all over the back of the panel.
I flipped the panel over one last time (there was a lot of flipping with this guy!) and placed it over the woodgrain patterned paper, making sure I had an even ⅛” border all around.
There you have it. A beautiful fall themed card that just about anyone would be happy to receive.
