Fabulous Flamingo and Embossing on Vellum

Hello Friends!
Today's video tutorial is about embossing on Vellum cardstock.

I've used Fabulous Flamingo 

and

Playful Backgrounds.


It's important that when you use vellum as a card base 
 that it be actual vellum cardstock

Stampin' Up!'s vellum is a 43# text weight cardstock
 In other words...
Sturdy!

My photography skills aren't the best, but I wanted to show you how thick it actually is.
Please bear in mind that you are looking at  2 layers with heat embossing on top.
In know it looks a bit yellow in this picture, but it's really white.  
I was having some lighting issues when I took the photos for this project, but in
real life, this card looks very cool!


Here's another shot of it laying on a white envelope:

An important tip when heat embossing on vellum is to be sure to use an anti-static powder tool
such as the Embossing Buddy.

**I made an error in the video and said that I used 1 1/4" Circle Punch for the mask on the sun.  I'm sorry about that...It was a 1 1/2" Circle Punch.**

Other products used:
Black Micron Pen
Sakura White Gel Pen
(For the beak, eye and wing highlights.)
