My project for today is for this week's TGIF Challenges technique challenge: dry embossed vellum. I love the look of dry embossed vellum!
Today I used a piece of Old Olive vellum from the Perennial Essence vellum card stock pack (#149101) and the Seasonal Wreath 3D embossing folder (#151796) to create my card:
I started with a Whisper White thick card stock base covered with a piece of the wood grain pattern from the Pressed Petals specialty designer series paper pack (#149500). Over the embossed wreath, I layered on pieces from the Toile Christmas bundle (#152367; including the Toile Christmas stamp set and Christmas Cardinal dies). I stamped the cardinal in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored it with the Real Red combo and Mango Melody combo Stampin' Blends. I stamped the greeting in VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129). I layered on die cut leaves in Mossy Meadow and die cut swirls in Gold Foil (#132622). Gold Metallic Pearls (#146282) compete the card.
