Birthday Snowflakes Using Heat Resistant Vellum
Heat-Resistant Vellum and the Brutus Monroe & Unity Miracle of Nature background stamp. The Brutus Monroe Vellum comes in a pack of 10 sheets sized to 4.25 X 5.5. It is heat resistant which makes it perfect for heat embossing. If you have someone in your life with a winter birthday this card is perfect.
To begin I placed the vellum in my Misti using a small amount of removable adhesive on the back to hold it in place. The Miracle of Nature background stamp was inked up with clear embossing ink and stamped onto the vellum. I repeated the process twice to make sure there was solid stamping due to the size of the stamp.
Next, the lightest blue color from the Hanukkah embossing powder collection was added to the vellum. To heat set the embossing powder I used tweezers to hold the vellum while heat was applied using a Wagner Heat Gun. When you heat emboss on non-heat resistant vellum you have to be very careful when applying heat or the vellum will turn a brown color from burning. The heat-resistant vellum allows you to apply more heat at a time to melt the embossing powder evenly.
A piece of ribbon I had in my stash with silver and blue snowflakes was wrapped around the bottom of the vellum panel. The ribbon is where I placed the sentiment banner created using Sterling embossing powder and the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from Botanical Banners.
The final step was to add the vellum to a piece of blue cardstock. To adhere the panel I added a small drop of glue to the center of each snowflake and set something heavy on it until it dried.
I hope this has inspired you to try out heat resistant vellum for your projects. We love to see the amazing projects you create. Don't forget to tag us on social media using #createyourownending #brutusmonroe and also on our fan Facebook page.
