Stamp And Heat Emboss Vellum Birthday Sunflower Card

Last time I did a heat and emboss vellum card was back in 2018!

Well, this hop is just as good! You’ll find 10+ creative card ideas using the Sweet Sorbet in-color to inspire your next crafting session in the Blog Hop below!

I am joining in with the Art With Heart Team’s Colour Creations Blog Hop with this Sweet Sorbet birthday card for my bestie.

What you need

The Sweet Sorbet colour from Stampin’ Ups!® 2022-2024 in-colour family is our focus and I have gone with a Basic White card, layered with a die edged Sweet Sorbet patterned paper and a stamp and heat emboss vellum sunflower image. The card is finished with a Parakeet Party ribbon tied into a bow.

How lovely does the large sunflower look heat embossed in white and then coloured?

Stamp and Heat Emboss Vellum Birthday Sunflower Card Recipe

It really is an easy card to make. Follow the instructions below.

  1. Begin with a Basic White standard card base and round the left top and bottom corners.
  2. Cut a 6 cm x 14.2 cm Sweet Sorbet patterned paper layer.
  3. Die cut the edge with the circle paper edge from the Blossoming Happiness dies. You will have to move the die up and run through the Stampin’ & Emboss machine twice to get the length of the patterned paper.
  4. Distress the paper edge by bending and randomly pulling a few edges off.
  5. Round the left top and bottom corners and adhere to the Basic White card base.
  6. Stamp sentiment in the bottom right of the card base.
  7. Ink up the sunflower image in the Celebrating Sunflowers stamp set with versamark and stamp onto vellum paper. Sprinkle white embossing powder over the stamped image and heat set with a heat tool.
  8. Use the sunflower outline die to cut the heat embossed image and cut another one from basic white card stock.
  9. On the backside of the heat embossed sunflower image, use Stampin’ Blend markers in Sweet Sorbet, Calypso Coral and Poppy Parade (dark) to randomly colour each sunflower petal. You may have to do this several times to get the desired colour to come through to the front. I coloured my petals at least three times.
  10. Using multi-purpose glue adhere the vellum sunflower to the basic white outline.
  11. Tie a bow in 30 cm of Parakeet Party ribbon and use a glue dot to adhere to the front of the sunflower image.
  12. Adhere foam mounts to the sunflower image and adhere to the card front.

  1. This is really lovely, Amie! Beautiful, crisp, colour combination, and that sunflower looks gorgeous. I love the rounded corners, and the torn “note paper” edge on the DSP; lovely details. You’ve showcased Sweet Sorbet beautifully.

  2. Amie your embossed sunflower is just gorgeous and coloured beautifully. I love the distressed edge on the DSP panel.

  3. Amie your card is delightful. I particularly like the depth of colour you were able to create with the Stampin’ Blends on your flower. The ‘torn’ notepaper edge and rounded corners really add to the overall design.

  4. Oh wow Amie that sunflower is just beautiful, and you have achieved the torn notepaper effect perfectly.
