Vellum Heat Embossed Winter Card

LOL! I have nothing to do this time of year. My roommate called me last night on his break and said" can you make a card for so and so. I'll pay you for it. Oh and it has to have a winter theme and not be too frilly. Something suitable to be displayed in a cabin." Luckily I had the day before been working on a card idea and had the card file in Studio ready to be cut out.(Click image to enlarge)

I used the frame file that can be found. Here I took the frame and was able to weld a plain rectangle the same size to make my card base. I also cut out a frame to use.  After the pieces were cut out I cut out a piece of vellum. I stamped with my snow flourish stamp with white embossing ink. Then sprinkled Recollection Snow Pearl embossing powder. Carefully I used my embossing gun. I then glued the vellum on the frame piece and then glued it on the card base carefully matching up the cutout snowflake. I think it looks more finished this way. Then I stamped my sentiment on vellum and using a glue stick glued it on the inside.

You could also do the same thing using a printable transparency. Just be careful heat embossing on a transparency. It is a little more trickier than heat embossing on vellum.

Off to deliver cards and ornaments in boxes.  Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
