Vellum Flowers

I got the idea for punching the sides of my card with a border punch from this lady's blog post. I think it adds a lot to the card and gives it a "softer" feel. I also used a "new to me" technique on this card --- stamping on vellum and coloring the back of it with markers.  I used embossing powder to make the image stand out and then turned it over and colored the back with my Bic markers. Really liking how it looks on the card....come back next week for a masculine card using the same technique!
Supplies used:
  • White/Pink Cardstock
  • Victoria Embossing Folder (Provo Craft)
  • Vellum
  • White Embossing Powder
  • Bic Markers
  • Stamps 
    • Flower - Creative Stamping
    • Leaves - Creative Stamping 
    • Sentiment -??? No marks on stamp
  •  Scallop Circle - Circle Nestabilities
  • Small flowers - leftovers from using my MS Bloom Dots punch
  • Gauzy pink ribbon

    This is gorgeous! I have a bunch of vellum sitting around here, so I should give this a try. I really like the white embossing powder contrast - it's perfect!
