Embossing Plus on Vellum

I just did this card today, and the technique worked really well. I decided to try an embossing Plus folder in my Sizzix Big Kick using vellum instead of card stock.The pinks in those little flowers came out looking flourescent in the photo for some reason, but they really aren't. They are the same colors as the rest of the pinks.

First, I cut the vellum a little larger than my EP folder, then ran it through the Big Kick. I mounted it on linen textured pink pearl paper from Core'dinations with pink metallic brads. I find that using an ordinary push pin is a great way to make starter holes for the brads. Then I mounted it all on a white card.

I then cut out another oval in regular white card stock from another EP folder, and mounted that in the center of the vellum oval.

I added two simple flowers made from an EK Success punch with centers made from a flower shaped hand punch, and I raised the petals a bit and put them in the centers of two of the embossed flowers.

I made a rolled rose from one of the circles from the Spellbinders blossom die and mounted it in the center. It's the first time I have tried a rolled rose, and it was really easy. Next time, I will try shading it and curling the petals a little before putting it together.

Finally, I added Queen & Co. pearls in two sizes.

Thanks Sandy :-)

Hi Peggy, the embossing folder is an Embossing Plus by Cuttlebug. I don't remember the name of the folder, and all of my scrapbooking stuff is at a small seasonal giftshop my mother and I run, so I can't look it up right now.

So far, there are only a few embossing plus folders, so it should be pretty easy to find.

Hi Gerry, the folder is called "Carly", and it's a Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Folder. I bought it a few years ago when they first came out.

I don't know whether or not they are still being made. There were five or six of them when they first came out, but they never seemed to make any new ones.

You probably will need to Google them to see if anyone is still selling them.
