Embossed Vellum Christmas Card

Sunday, 2 October 2022


Today I'm sharing a card that features embossed Vellum.  I was asked by one of my followers recently to share techniques using Vellum Cardstock.  One of my favourite techniques is to emboss it using an Embossing Folder.  It creates such a pretty background for a card.
