I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Vellum and Metallic Rub Ons

I made this card for my daughter-in-laws upcoming birthday.  I punched the flower out of white vellum that had a gold and silver fleck in it, then I put the vellum petals through my big shot in an embossing folder.  

The background papers is glossy card stock run through the big shot in an embossing folded then rubbed with metallic gold embossing paste which I added with my fingers.   I like the effect.  To complete the card I added a pretty button for the center of the flower and some silver ribbon.     

The card is very simple but I think very pretty. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a creative day.
