how to heat emboss vellum cardstock

Stamping and then heat embossing vellum is one of my favourite techniques. And it’s many of my customers too.

In fact my very first live video (with its little oops and glitches 😳) still is one of my most popular videos. It shows how to heat emboss a Christmas card using vellum. Take a peek.

Your Tools Make the Difference

Just like in baking and cooking, having the right tools for paper crafting really does make the difference.

The difference between so-so cards and over-the-top stupendous cards!

In this case, the type of vellum you use, and your heat tool could be the culprit to wrinkly old results.


A word of caution for the vellum cardstock. Much to my dismay, Stampin’ Up! has put it on the Last Chance List! We don’t know if it will be coming back into the Online Exclusives or not at this point. I sure hope so as it’s one of my go-to supplies!

So if you have never tried it before and love the look of it, make sure to grab a package before it sells out!

But the good news is, it’s an easy fix! Let’s see.
