How to Create a Unique Handmade Floral Card with Vellum Paper and Clear Embossing

by Virginia Lu

Hello, Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. I am happy to share a card that comes with multiple elements. I love an elegant and personalized hand-stamped card and I hope you do too. With today's post, I hope it inspires you to create your own unique designs.


Let's start with the focal point. I watercolored the Breezy Bouquet with Watercolor Brush Markers. After dabbing the colors on the Watercolor Palette, I was able to pick up just the right amount of watercolor for the image.  Once I was happy with the coloring, I die cut the image and set aside.

Next, I stamped the vase in Jet Black and clear-embossed the vase image onto Vellum Translucent Paper. I then colored in the green stems with Artist Markers and set it aside.

I took out the Crystal Frames Die Set and die cut two pieces – one in Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock and Gold Foil Cardstock.

Before I assembled the card, I added splatters with Antique Gold Ink Spray on the Woodgrain Powder Cardstock. This card has multiple elements (vellum, white, gold foil and beige cardstock). However, with the intricate die and bright colors, it all came together! It truly is unique and one of a kind! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you were inspired to create your own unique handmade card!

Super card using several techniques!

Love this. I have been using this one lately quite a bit but I had a layered on top of the top of the background. Great idea!

Denise Bryant February 8, 2020 - 12:22 PM

So pretty! I love the layering.

So sorry Virginia I meant to type your name, not Victoria.

This is such a pretty card! You incorporated so many different things which makes it so unique. The woodgrained card stock and the white ornate frame add lots of texture, whereas the vellum and gold foil card stock add visual interest. The gold splatters bring out the colors of the flowers.

This is one of my favorite Virginia cards–beautiful!

Maura February 9, 2020 - 1:50 PM

The use of the crystal frames behind your lovely flowers creates such a beautiful and interesting focal image, Virginia!!
