Embossing on vellum

Good morning all, I hope you are having a good week. Apologies for the late post today, a bit of a mix up in who was supposed to be blogging lol. But better late than never I hope.

Anyway I am on the count down now as it's 2 weeks tomorrow until our holiday and I can't wait. A week in the Spanish sunshine is just what the doctor ordered at the moment ;o))

Today's card is one I made for mum to give Jude for her birthday on Sunday. I used a good quality vellum and the Mama Elephant Organic Blooms stamp and stamped it with Versamark ink. Then I heat embossed it with Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder.

I do love this colour as it's somewhere in between gold and silver and gives a really lovely effect. 

I used a thick navy blue textured card for the base and made a sentiment using the Crafter's Companion Sentimentals Female set and the Clearly Besotted Mini Heroes set.  

I cut around the embossed image freehand and then stuck this to the card front. I tried a mixture of wet glue and glue tape to try and get an adhesive that doesn't show through the vellum, but nothing I had worked. So I need to investigate this more lol.

But I got around it a bit by adding lots of sparkly sequins and dew drops.

Hope you like it, take care and I'll see you soon.
