Vellum Overlay



Hello everyone and welcome! Ksenija here today and I am sharing a traditional Christmas card featuring the red rubber stamps set Snow Globe released recently. I love this set as it reminds me of my native town Riga, an old medieval city. And I thought of white embossing the snow globe on vellum as soon as I saw it.

Firstly, I repeatedly stamped the image of buildings in red dye ink on the kraft panel. Then I sprinkled some diluted acrylic paint in Pantry White and heat set it with a heating tool.

Then I heat embossed with white embossing powder the snow globe image on a piece of vellum and the base of the snow globe in dark chocolate dye ink on a piece of white cardstock.

I cut out both elements with scissors and created the candy striped background by stamping the front of the card in red dye ink.

Assembling the card I glued the snow globe with Glossy Accents and its base raised with the foam tape.
