Hi everyone! I first saw the satin vellum in one of Jennifer Mcguire’s video tutorial and I thought it was so cool. I was so very tempted to buy the product recommended but held off on it and I’m glad I did! I discovered by accident that I could use my embellishment mousse to create the same effect and I was so thrilled!
I discovered this by accident when I was working on my embellishment mousse on stencils for another project. I had some smeared on my fingers so I decided to wipe it off on scrap paper sitting nearest to me and it happened to be a piece of vellum. When I cleaned my desk after I saw that the vellum that I had wiped the mousse in had a wonderful satin sheen.
And if you have some dried up Nuvo embellishment mousse – do not throw them away! I have a simple way of refreshing it and it’s all on my video linked below!
Here are close-ups of my card. I used mostly Trinity stamp products. The beautiful quilt cover die is one my favorites! I just added drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ivory Seashell in all the areas where the stitches intersected.
I also used Platinum embossing powder and the First Bloom stamp set for the focal point of my card design. The sentiment “Praying for You” is the from the Sentiments for almost Everything stamp set. I matted the panel with cardstock with Platinum embossed edges.
I hope you were inspired and learned from this technique. If you do not have embellishment mousse, you could always use specialty cardstock with a similar finish to create this card.
‘Til next time!
