Vellum embossing blue flowers card border tutorial.

Hello.  For Technique Time at Unity, I am sharing vellum embossing and creating a blue floral card border.

Sentiment: The world needs more of you.

This technique creates a soft look that can be used on its own or over a patterned background.  I used a premade background layer, but patterned paper would work also.

Here are helpful tips for creating the vellum embossing.  To begin, use a premade background or use patterned paper.  Next, stamp the flowers with embossing or watermark ink onto quality vellum cardstock.  I like Papertrey Ink vellum cardstock as it holds up to heat embossing.  Next, heat emboss the flowers using embossing powder with color.  I used blue.  Next, cut (fussy cut) around one side of the florals to make a card border.  Then, stamp and trim a sentiment panel.  Finally, adhere all of the layers to finish.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
