I saw Jennifer McGuire do a card of vellum and thought it would be fun to try. That’s about where the similarity ends as I tried a bunch of different techniques. I used vellum as my entire card base and put a white piece of cardstock (110 lb. that is 2 3/4″ wide by 4″ tall) inside the vellum and put a blank piece of white card stock on the back of the vellum the same size.
I took the 2 3/4″ x 4″ tall piece of white Recollections card stock and put it in the MISTI and put the picture of my Rubbernecker stamp over the card stock where I wanted to stamp the image. Lay the non-lined stamp over the picture so it covers the entire image and then close the door of the MISTI so it adheres. I used a bunch of Gelato type products on my stamp including Gelatos, Instant Educa Play Color, and Faber Castell Gel Crayons. First, I sprayed the stamp with water and covered the images with different colors. Then I stamped once on scrap paper and the second time stamped on the card stock inside. I rubbed the gelato type products on a piece of acetate and used it as a palette for coloring. I used a brush and water to color with.
I used Marco Renoir colored pencils to enhance the colors and defined the flowers before stamping the second layer. I put the card centered inside the vellum and put temporary adhesive behind it. The vellum is 8 1/2″ tall by 5 1/2″ wide scored at 4 1/4″. I put the vellum piece in the MISTI and used Versafine Onyx Black ink on my second layer and then Ranger clear embossing powder on that and heat set it.
I used a die set from Avery Elle called a Tag for all Die for the thank you and made my own black shiny paper by using black paper and clear embossing powder and then heat set it.
I cut a second pink “thank you” with the Vagabond. The vellum was adhered together with Tombow Vellum adhesive. I attached another piece of cardstock on the back of the front piece of cardstock and it will remain blank so you can write on it. It is also 2 3/4″ x 4″ tall.
I off set the thank you pink and black card stocks and they looked really great in the end. I attached them on an angle on the top and bottom of the card. I used Elmer’s Craft Glue and the Tombow Vellum tape runner to adhere them to the card.
I had to use a glue stick to adhere my washi tape to the envelope.
The Rubbernecker stamp is called Bouquet #919 and here’s the link to it on their site. http://www.rubbernecker.com/product-p/919.htm
