I've finished my cards, and will try scanning them tomorrow before I mail them. I traced a carousel horse onto vellum, then embossed it with a stylus, and then decorated it all up with gold and silver paint pen. I mounted the the vellum to cardstock and scrapbooking paper with gemstone brads. They are quite pretty, almost ghostlike, but probably won't scan at all.

Here is a sneak peak, although you have to imagine that the background papers show through more in real life.

Bex
