Create with a Large Detailed Cling Stamp

Hello friends!
I am popping in to share my take with this large detailed cling stamp. 

This cling stamp measures 5" x 7.5". It is definitely large enough to cover the entire card front. 
Following photo sample from the package , you can easily color the images to create a vintage Christmas card.

I started out with white-embossing the image on vellum (Bazzille 40 Lbs). 

I have done many versions of alcohol ink cards before, but this is the first time that I create colors with vellum on BOTH sides.


With the Alcohol Blending Marker, I can easily add colors to the tight spaces on the front.
For the backside, I poured the alcohol ink colors that appealed to me the most and created a bright backdrop.
Merry Christmas

Once dried, both side show only color and the surface is sleek and smooth. No bulk at all.
It also helps to apply Stitched Stackers Die along with the Tan Embossing Mat to create a dry-embossed border. 

Merry Christmas -001

I love the transparency of Bazzill Vellum and how it interacts with Alcohol ink. It is cheaper than the Yupo Paper. AND it is much more light -weight for easy mailing.


I hope that you are inspired by my card today!
