Hi friends, today’s card was inspired by Kristina Werner. One of her trademarks is the white stitching around the card. I love the look this creates! Heat embossing on vellum can be tricky. The paper wants to curl and warp when the heat tool is applied, so be sure to move the tool around a lot and not hold it too close to the paper. It takes a little longer this way, but you end up with a smoother end result. Also, choose an image or sentiment that has some thicker, more solid areas. This way you’ll have a place to hide your adhesive. Vellum shows everything through it, including adhesive, so to achieve a cleaner look, hide your glue dots behind the white areas. I have just three glue dots holding this strip on, behind the two S’s and the N. That’s enough to hold it in place. The flowers were initially a bit stiff looking so I crumpled them up and broke down the fibers before adhering them to the paper. This adds texture and interest. Hope your day is special!
