Use your stylus tool to emboss each of your scalloped beads.
Do not press hard, you will tear the vellum.
Go back over your embossed areas with your stylus tool and white pencil.
Place a Classic Oval Nestabilities™ in the center of your Vellum piece and trace the outside of the die with your stylus tool.
Cut and emboss your neutral colored cardstock with the same Classic Oval Nestabilities die.
Pick a small decorative stamp.
Stamp the image on a scrap piece of paper.
It doesn't matter what color ink you use. Use some water-based ink so it will be dry faster.
Place your stamped image on your mat and your Vellum piece face down on your stamped image. Trace over the design with aWhite Opaque Pen.
Continue all the way around.
