Birthday Vellum

It's my MIL's birthday today. Still inspired by the Clear & Sheer class and by Jennifer McGuire, I traced the Altenew flower and leaves in white pencil onto heavy parchment vellum. I embossed from behind then coloured (also from behind) using blue and grey Copic markers. I also printed the message from the computer and traced in white pencil, then embossed from behind. I adhered the sequins using Glossy Accents then put more Glossy Accents behind the sequins to adhere the small piece of white backing card.
I adhered a half card-sized panel to the inside of the card to support the vellum. Knowing the adhesive would be visible from behind, I embossed a line where it would be to make a feature of it.

Heat Embossed Acetate Slider Card

Another day spent playing with ideas from the Clear & Sheer class. I love cards that push the boundaries so this idea really appealed to me.

Stamp from StampIt.
Distress Inks and
Markers used :
Salty Ocean
Peacock Feathers
Wild Honey
Fossilized Amber
Ripe Persimmon

It was with some
trepidation that I
stamped and heat-
embossed onto a
sheet of acetate from
the local newsagent
(overhead projector film).
However all went well - I followed the class advice to minimise static on the sheet.
