The magic of Softly Falling plus vellum

When you use vellum in an embossing folder, something magical happens: the raised areas turn white. This makes vellum and the Softly Falling embossing folder a match made in heaven; you’ll get lovely white snow which stands out from the background, in more ways than one. 

This was the Make & Take for my party last Friday; it’s not as straightforward as my usual Make & Takes but these were experienced ladies so I knew they’d do as they were told when I explained that the stamped trees need to dry fully before they go through the Big Shot. Because vellum is not as porous as Whisper White cardstock, the ink sits on top and takes ages to dry; emboss too early and, as long as you keep your vellum still, you might get away with it… but the next person to use the folder will end up with a splodgy green mess. Thankfully, nobody did… and they all loved the project.

Now you may be looking at the supply list and thinking that the use of the Mini Treat Bag die is a little extravagant just for the tiny star on top of the tree. But this was part of a project ensemble, which included, yep, a Mini Treat Bag, so it was perfectly logical!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
