Embossed Vellum Wrap & H2O's

I created a vellum wrap for this card by embossing the top part of the vellum with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and the bottom half with the Stylised Flowers folder leaving a little bit of vellum at the top to overlap and attach at the back of the card.
I then painted the flowers and vines on the vellum with H2O paint cakes, mixing them to a very thick creamy consistancy first.
Once the paint had dried I turned it over and with a ball tool I re-embossed over the flowers and vines then attached it to the back of the card with wacky tacky tape.
I punched out 5 small flowers and attached a pearl to each centre and stuck them along the top of the card spacing them evenly, I punched 2 holes at either side of the vellum and slotted the ribbon through the holes and fastened it over the top of the vellum with a knot

Absolutely fantastic Jak. I'm not great in keeping the paint in the lines, could you paint on the debossed side, would the colour still come through the vellum.

I love the simplicity of this card. It's one any of us with these folders could do - great that you can create things that we can do too.
Well done.
