I love vellum! How about you? In fact, there are so many ways you can incorporate it into your projects. Not to mention the product that CutCardStock carries is fabulous! In particular, it is nice and thick, and I had no problem using the heat gun for the embossing.

First, a piece of vellum was cut to 4 3/4 x 6 1/4 inches. Then, I stamped the floral image in the center with VersaMark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.
Next, the floral image was colored on the backside of the vellum.
Additionally, I diecut a frame for the vellum panel by taping 2 dies together and making one cut out of gold glitter card stock.
Then the frame was adhered to the vellum with double-sided tape and trimmed around the edge of the frame.
Firstly, cut a piece of Basis white card stock to 10 x 6 1/2 inches, score 5 inches along the 10-inch side, and fold in half. This forms a 5 x 6 1/2 inch card base. Next, the front of the card is covered with a piece of 5 x 6 1/2 pink card stock.
Lastly, another piece of Basis white card was cut to 4 3/4 x 6 1/4 inches and adhered to the center of the card base.
Finishing the Design
Then, my framed vellum piece is adhered to the card center with foam tape.
In addition, a sentiment was stamped, diecut, and adhered with foam tape.
And finally, pearls completed the design.
I hope I’ve provided a little inspiration for you to give stamping, embossing, and coloring on vellum a try.
