Welcome to the Pals’ July  Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects that are “Mixing It Up” –  adding texture that will really take your projects up a notch – or two! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Free as a Bird Scripty Thank You - prettypapercards - stampinup

Today’s card uses my new favorite way to add texture to my cards ~ embossed vellum! When you put a piece of vellum inside an embossing folder and run it through your die machine, it creates a wonderful patterned surface that retains a soft version of the color underneath!

The new Scripty 3D Embossing Folder used on vellum gives just the right texture for this sweet family of birds. The 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of vellum is layered over a same-sized piece of Daffodil Delight card stock and adhered with Multipurpose Glue in the center.

The bird family from the Free as a Bird stamp set was stamped on a 4″ x 2-1/4″ piece of Whisper White card stock and colored in with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. A piece of the – absolutely gorgeous – Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon was tied in a bow around the left side of the paper, and a flagged-end banner was stamped with the “thank you” sentiment.
