I had so much fun with the tic-tac-toe snow card, I decided to do another one with Wheat. The tic-tac-toe challenge is from Gina K Designs’ Monthly Challenge, and I decided to combine it with CASology’s Wheat Challenge.
This time for the tic-tac-toe, I went with Emboss Resist, Square, and Vellum. I used Gina K Designs Handmade Botanicals and Ranger Ink Gold Embossing Powder to heat emboss the gold wheat onto a square vellum. Then I used Clearly Besotted Simply Said Stamp Set for the sentiment.
If I understand Emboss Resist, you emboss first and then add ink after, which is what I did. The ink I used from top to bottom was Gina K Designs Wild Dandelion, Sweet Mango, and Dark Chocolate. I added some Jute rope to “tie” my wheat bundle together. I had to add a yellow border to add my adhesive on my vellum. Is there any adhesive that won’t show on vellum?
I didn’t like my first card, due to the vellum warping from heat embossing, and I couldn’t lay it flat down completely. I actually liked the card I came up with, so I decided to make a second version, hoping it wouldn’t warp as much.
Second time around, my vellum didn’t warp as much. 🥳For the ink, I changed it up a bit and instead of GKD Dark Chocolate, I used Red Velvet instead. The sentiment used was from GKD Wealth of Wishes.

Thank you for stopping by! Please let me know if you know of an adhesive that won’t show up on vellum. Thanks.
