On Monday you met Crayola, and today you are going to meet three of her friends.

These little guys are much more interested in playing in a tropical jungle than in eating bananas.

At the top of the jungle is Trouble.  He is the ring leader of the group,  and that is why he is at the top!  He wouldn't let me put him any other place.  Below him are twin brothers, Max and Mort.  Can you figure out which one is which because I can't.

These three friends are playing in the ferns which were made by using the Fern 3D embossing folder and embossing Vellum Cardstock.

There are so many different ways to use Vellum Cardstock, and I often forget how pretty it is when you dry emboss it.

To learn more ideas for using vellum you can watch this Learning With Friends video.

For this card I heat embossed the branch on the Vellum with black embossing powder.  Then I colored the back side of the branch with Pecan Pie and Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blends before I embossed it.

When I make a special technique sheet for a card I often make it larger than my desired finished size.  Then I can trim it to the finished size and have "leftovers" to decorate something else.

On today's card I used a leftover piece of the embossed Vellum to add a little trim on the inside of my card.
