Roses with Vellum Dimension

Karen H. here today and I am sharing a card that features Crackerbox Palace’s beautiful roses and a technique I call Vellum Dimension. This is one of the cards that will be in an article in Scrap and Stamp Arts in their October issue that I wrote about that technique. Normally I chose animal stamps with stripes or spots, but this card shows the technique can be done with any stamp with smaller areas of white. To achieve the dimension, you stamp on vellum, turn over and “color” in the flowers and leaves with a stylus on a thick pad being careful not to tear the vellum.This stretches and whitens the vellum and it pops up with great dimension. After completing the “coloring”, I attached the vellum piece to a floral frame created with an embossing and cutting folder by Cuttlebug. I added some pearls and rounded the corners to complete the card.

Thanks for stopping by the Crackerbox Palace blog. The CBP website is being upgraded currently, but you can always email or call them if you want any of the stamps I share.

Crackerbox Palace smiles, Karen
