I Simply...

Hi there all!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend:)  

I wanted to share with you today a very simple yet elegant card that uses some embossing powder and some vellum.  This card is intended to be a birthday card but you could make it whatever you wanted.  I was going to give this card to my mother (who just had a birthday on January 14th), but in the end went in another direction.  We live in Michigan, so right now it is winter for us and is snowing... or should I say suppose to be snowing... we don't have one flake of snow on the ground right now, which is just WEIRD, but it is Michigan so you never know what you are going to get:)  Anyway, so I didn't think that it would be too far fetched to have a birthday card that had some snowflakes on it.

Now I do want to share two tips with you... when you are embossing on Vellum, make sure to 1) get your heat tool good and HOT.  I mean HOT.  Turn it on a few seconds (I normally let mine heat up 20-25 seconds) before you intend to use it and 2) don't stop moving it.  Keeping it moving is really going to help your vellum not to melt.

Hope those little tips help:)  That is it for today.  Thanks for stopping by and until next time...
Happy Inkin'
