Heat embossing on vellum

Today I made a card and a video tutorial about embossing on vellum with the new heat tool from Stampin' Up! which was new in the 2012 - 2013 catalog. It has two heat setting, low and high, and you can emboss on vellum with the low heat setting.  It doesnt' damage the vellum at all and it is hot enough to set the embossing powder.  Did you know that you can emboss with the new Stampin' Up! Classic ink pads?  They are wet enough for the embossing powder to stick.  Here's the card I created.

Stamp sets - Creative Elements, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock - Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White, Vellum Card Stock , Floral District DSP
Ink - Raspberry Ripple Classic ink
Accessories - Heat tool, clear embossing powder, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, Big Shot, Modern Label punch, 3/8' Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini glue dots

The Floral District DSP actually matches Rich Razzleberry, but the piece I chose went nicely with the Raspberry Ripple card stock. It had just a small amount of the Rich Razzleberry in the pattern.

Below is the video I created about embossing on vellum. I hope you'll try it.
