Here is a card we made a couple of months ago at stamp club (see what you are missing?). The flowers are from the Stampin' Up! Mixed Bunch stamp set. I stamped them with Versamark™ and embossed them with Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo embossing powder. They were punched out with the coordinating Blossom Punch. I paper pierced around the edge of the Whisper White card stock and used a Stampin' Write marker to make the faux stitching.
Vellum is so fun to work with! I like card stock vellum for embossing as it is thicker and doesn't wrinkle as much.
