I have used vellum card and embossed it with the hot air balloon folder. Using a dauber, I added ink to the back and then adhered it to a white cardstock with brads.
I have added some ribbon and a sentiment for another simple but effective card.
The same technique is used below with a Stampin' Up Sizzix embossing folder. As you can see, the image is slightly sharper, but the overall effect is the same.
Till next time,
