My average photographic skills don't do much justice to how three dimensional and textured this card looks in real life. The main panel is embossed using some inky embossing paste over a beautiful stencil. I added an stamped-and-embossed vellum piece in between the panel and the main sentiment to ease the transition in colors. (Side rant about vellum : I wish vellum was available in a brighter/whiter shade. I feel that the 40lb vellum from Bazzill is more cream colored than white and against a white background, it kinda looks dirty :( ) I stamped-and-white-embossed the main sentiment on Lavendar 100lb SSS cardstock. I trimmed the stenciled panel to let the card base color show on the edges and adhered everything down using 3D foam tape.
