Vellum Embossed Thank You

Try embossing with your Big Shot and any of the textured embossing folders for a rich, bold look on your card fronts.

I started with Pear Pizzazz cardstock and then cut a piece of Vellum Cardstock to fit the front of the card, and embossed it with the Finial Press Embossing Folder.   I then added some Concord Crush ribbon which I put onto the vellum with snail adhesive, and the bold flower, from the Printed Petals Stamp Set was inked with Concord Crush ink, cut out, and then placed onto the ribbon and vellum with a 5/8" Neutral Brad.  To hold the vellum into place without leaving any marks I placed a piece of sticky strip behind this area. Now the layer stays put, and there was no need to put adhesive anywhere else.  The line of sticky strip is hidden with the ribbon and is strong enough to hold the entire layer in place.  A piece of DSP from the In Color Level 1 Hostess Set, was punched out and layered behind my sentiment.
