Stained Glass Vellum card

Today I want to show you the steps and the final product of the Spring Card we made using the Stained Glass Vellum technique.  The very first step was to heat emboss the flowers on vellum cardstock using white embossing powder.  Then we flipped the vellum over and sponged on color on the back using daubers.  We didn't have to be careful with the coloring here, as we're going to cut out the flowers.
Here is the vellum flipped back over and you can see the beautiful color coming through.
The we carefully cut out each flower and the stem of leaves.  Aren't they pretty.  So soft looking - perfect for a bridal shower or wedding card.
So here is the final result - we dry embossed the white later with the dots,  Punched a great tag out using our new tag topper punch, added some ribbon, dimensionals and pearls.
 That's it!  Beautiful- I really like the look of this technique and I love how the card turned out.
See you all soon.  ~Maureen
