Good morning and welcome back to the craft room and today’s Flashback Friday; Another Vellum Card post. Today we are heading back to August 2015 for another look at vellum cards. In my original post I neglected to mention the name of the stamp. It is the Old Fashioned Rose by PSX. This is one of my now unused wood mounted stamps, however, it was one of my most loved back in the day. Let’s take a look at how I used it in today’s flashback.
Another Vellum Card
The creative juices are flowing once again, at least for a while!! LOL Last night while mindlessly looking through Pinterest I saw a card that gave me an idea for another use with vellum. It’s sort of like the card I made the other day, but it’s just a tad different.
Rather than coloring the image on the reverse side of the vellum, I stamped and embossed my image on a piece of water color paper. Then, using Distress Inks and a blender pen I added the color to that image. Cutting a piece of vellum the same size, I stamped and embossed it to act as an overlay. Below is a picture of the paper layers before I stuck everything together.
As you can see in the image not only did I color the rose, but I also added some additional shading to the edge of the image with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The rose itself was colored with Rusty Hinge and Peeled Paint.
Along with the blender pen, I also used Memento Ink for the stamping, clear embossing powder, as well as my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure everything lined up perfectly.
Just like the card I made the other day, I also used brads to hold all of my image layers together. Here’s a close-up for you.
I don’t often think about the inside of my cards, although I make sure there is a light color piece of paper to write on. But this time I did add a piece of the patterned paper from the front of the card. To add some dimention I shaded it with a bit of vintage photo distress ink. This adds interest but still leaves plenty of room to write a note in the card.
I love how this card turned out! With two layers of the same image you get some amazing depth of field. It isn’t that easy to see in the photos, in person though, it’s so very pretty.
Thank you so much for joining me for today’s Flashback Friday Another Vellum Card post. If you missed my other vellum card, you can find that post here – Flashback Friday Vellum Sunflower.
