Hey stampers! One year ago tomorrow, our daughter married the love of her life. I truly can’t believe a whole year has passed; I wish we were just getting ready for the wedding so I could enjoy it all over again…ha! Since that isn’t possible, I have a wedding project to share with you. Also, a Vellum Embossing Tip – Cheers to the Year Wedding card.
2 tips to think about when using vellum. First, since adhesive will show through the vellum layer, be sure to hide it under an embellishment (such as a button or rhinestone) or use ribbon to adhere vellum layer to card . Second, as in today’s project, when you stamp on vellum, be sure to use your heat tool to “set” the ink. Even better, emboss your sentiment and then you can be sure the ink will not smudge.
Here are the instructions for the card. If you would like to make it, all the supplies can be purchased at my online store.
