We have some good friends who celebrated their wedding anniversary on Wednesday. I won’t say how long they have been married but my husband wore a brown corduroy suit. Anyway, I always like to make a special card for them. This year I used the Flourishing Phrases and some Stampin’ Blends for their special greeting.

Have you ever done heat embossing on Vellum Card Stock? I’ll tell you all about it.

Design Notes for Flourishing Phrases Anniversary Card:

I once asked a friend who is a heat embossing expert, if it was possible to emboss on Vellum. “Sure”, she replied. “It almost never catches on fire.”  I think of that every time I heat emboss on vellum. I’ve not ever had a fire but I am careful!

The cool thing about embossing on vellum is that you can feature either side when you use it on your card or project. Here’s the piece I used on this card before I colored it in with Stampin’ Blends.

This is the reverse side.

This is the side I embossed on.

Once I colored in the flourish, I decided to feature the reverse side. If I had not colored it in. I probably would have used the embossed side. No rules here. Just what you think looks good.

By the way, the caution is in regard to the fact that the paper is lighter than regular card stock and so has the potential to get warmer. Just pay attention, you won’t have any problems.
