  1. Vellum and Colour Card Trim a piece of vellum to 4 ¾” x 6”, secure this in your stamping platform and brush over the surface using an anti-static bag. Line up your stamp and ink up using clear embossing ink. Press the stamp to the surface of the vellum to transfer the image.
  2. Vellum and Colour Card Sprinkle white embossing powder over the surface of the vellum. Tap away the excess and use a heat tool to melt and set the powder.
  3. Vellum and Colour Card Turn the vellum over and begin colouring in your image on the reverse side. Start with your lightest colour and ensure a good even coverage.
  4. Vellum and Colour Card Introduce further colours to add depth, blend the colours together by working over the image.
  5. Vellum and Colour Card Colour all your image and when you are finished turn the vellum over to the correct way up. Check your work, if you need to add more shading you can do so.
  6. Vellum and Colour Card Create an aperture from white card measuring 5 ¼” x 6 ¾” on the outside and 4” x 5 ½” internally. This will frame your vellum.
  7. Vellum and Colour Card Use double sided tape to fix the vellum to the inside of the aperture.
  8. Vellum and Colour Card For your sentiment, take a strip of black card measuring 5 ¼” x 1” and heat embossing your sentiment to the centre in the same way you did for Step 1.
  9. Vellum and Colour Card Mount your sentiment on foam pads to give it height and fix it to the lower half of your card panel.
  10. Vellum and Colour Card To finish, mount your card panel of foam pads and fix to your card blank.
