May, 2013 - Frosted Embossed Background

One more technique using vellum creating a very cool background.
Lets begin! 

Step 1:  Run vellum through the Big Shot using a background embossing folder. 

Step 2:  Stamp images using Classic Ink on the vellum and decorate the vellum sheet. (Allow alittle extra time for the ink to try) 

Step 3:  Adhere the vellum piece to cardstock, making to camouflage where you place your
adhesive. You don’t want it to be seen later. 

On our First Card, we will use ribbon to help to secure the vellum to the cardstock.
