Let me show you exactly how to stick vellum to cardstock with my Facebook Live Replay.
Vellum is so fun to play with in our paper crafting. I love it so much it’s my Product of this week over on my group Facebook Page, Design with Jo VIPeeps! Come join in the fun all this week!
What’s NOT to love about the look of vellum cardstock?
- Frosty white.
- Transparent but softens everything behind it.
- Adds a touch of glamour and class.
- Easy to work with.
- Sturdy and strong as a paper crafting element.
But there’s just one teensy little challenge. You can see almost EVERY type of adhesive through it! But luckily there’s a couple ways to get fabulous results with real sticking power.
I showed you one way to apply it over designer series paper here. Now here’s another way you’re going to want to try right away.
Can you see any glue showing through? And no brads or sequins or rhinestones in sight. (and no, it’s not only hiding behind those three pearls! 😋).
Let me show you exactly how you can have this magic work too. But first, here’s what we need to make this a cinch to do at home. (BIIIIIIG hint!!)Technique Supplies
