2. Color the orchids with LuLu Lavender, Grape Jelly, Cantaloupe, and Potters Clay Memento Markers. Sponge the edges of a light purple mat and adhere orchid image.


3. Apply irRESISTible Pico Shimmer over the orchids one petal at a time, using the embossed edges as a berm.

4. Fill in the background with Pico Gold and Silver. Since this is on Card stock Vellum, as it dries the vellum will puff up randomly giving lots of dimension. Set aside.


5. Emboss a 4” x 5 ¼” panel with a Sizzix Trellis Embossing folder.

6. Die cut 4 black gable decorations from the Brick House die and adhere to the corners of the embossed panel.

7. Adhere a piece of lace vertically onto card.

8. With dimensional tape, add completed floral image onto the card.

9. Embellish with a satin ribbon bow and add pearls to the corners.

  1. El dahling, this is magnificent. I love the effect. That image is perfect on the vellum. No wonder you’re referred to as ‘resident artist’. This is over the top, girl. Over and out.

  2. I am unfamiliar with a few of the products so I love seeing how to use them. I appreciate that your post included both the directions and a picture of the finished product. I have stamped on vellum before but never thought that you could use so many products with it to obtain this type of effect. Thank you.
