Birthday Celebration–Day 2 with Simply Sketched on Vellum

Woo hoo! It’s day 2 of my celebration and I have another card to share with you today.  This is a card that I made for my Fun n’ Crafty demo team swap.  Each month, everyone in my downline is invited to participate in a card swap… sort of like a secret santa – only for cards.  You are given one or more names to send a card to.  You know you will get a card for each one you send, but you don’t know from whom or when in the month it will arrive.  It’s pretty fun!

Anyway, while I was working on samples for my Vellum class, I was inspired to try out heat embossing on the vellum and then coloring in between the embossed lines with some bold marker colors.  Check it out:

I reached for a bunch of supplies that I love but don’t use nearly enough (lets hear it for vellum, candy dots, and core’dinations cardstock!) and started mixing and matching using a simple card design.

I made a couple in this AWESOME Cherry Cobbler colors and then one in the Island Indigo color. 

To make this card, it is simple to do. 

  1. Stamp your image on Vellum cardstock using Versamark ink
  2. Cover with White embossing powder and heat
  3. Color in between the raised embossed lines using a marker
  4. Glue Vellum to the front of your card or designer paper mat using candy dots (if you paper starts curling, you may need to secure the corners with glue dots and then cover with the candy dots)

Oh, and that core’dintations cardstock?  It makes a great textured background and if you grab your handy dandy sanding block, it distresses beautifully and gives it a velvety feel.  (seriously, sand some of this paper and feel it!)

    Pretty card, I’ll have to get out the vellum! The last card that I made was a quickie, so I just did a design with my Cuttlebug and then added a few embelishments and such.

    Wow, these cards are really phenomenal! I often don’t use vellum because it is hard to cover up the adhesive but the candy dots work great. The embossing paired with coloring it in makes for a really great effect. Thanks for the chance to win blog candy!

    Lovely card. The recent cards I made were holiday cards to give at my son’s school and at work.
