Faux embossing using vellum

Hello!  I recently shared this card over on Instagram and thought.....hmm.  I haven't shared it on my blog yet!  You may have seen it on IG or over on the Taylored Expressions blog earlier this week.

I just love how this card came together!  Isn't it nice when an idea you have actually works out for a card design? did here!

I would LOVE for you to read my post over on the TE Blog----->HERE for all the details on how this was made but there's one tip or technique I wanted to share.  For my "faux embossing" look with the Leafy Vine Cutting Plate, I first adhered some Stick It adhesive to the back of thick vellum and ran the die through my Big Shot.  This vellum is amazing and almost gives an opaque look so it's perfect to layer over a notecard for an embossed look!

I love how this card screams SPRING but how I wish spring would get here!  Just this week we've had burn warnings d/t wind, 80 degrees, rain, snow, and then cooler temps.  I want to leave my windows open and enjoy the breeze!!!  :(

Anyway, thanks so much for sharing a part of your day with me!

Amy this is a beautiful card and I will go check out your post! Your weather sounds crazy and I hope the windows can stay open. We are up and down. I the temps get just 1 or 2 degrees higher temps the last of the snow will melt.
