Today I want to show you the perfect way to adhere vellum! Yes, it’s FINALLY time to do away with all those little bits of glue that seep through your vellum dies! Check it out in my YouTube live replay!
How many times have you looked longingly at your vellum paper but left it in the drawer because you just can’t get it to stick down without the glue showing through?
I’m with ya!
But I love it!
And it really adds a cool look to your cards and scrapbook pages, so it’s such a shame to leave it buried!
So, that’s why you need to take a peek at today’s card and video!
A fresh and colourful card. Great with the crisp white background and interesting with the textured looking vellum!
Ideal for a birthday or shower card for a special gal pal. Or just a quick thinking of you too!
That’s the Vellum Basics 12×12 paper from the 2023-24 Annual Catalogue. In the background you see a piece of the leaf impression one and I decided on the dotted one for our flowers.
Plus look close.
Don’t you love the detail on the large Calypso Coral label? I showed how each of the nested shapes shares a different type of decoration – something I’m really loving with our newest die shapes!
Now if you think you don’t have time to make this card…it’s time to reconsider!
The video is only about 30 minutes and the card making part is less than that! Well worth your time to take a few minutes to yourself and indulge! And learn a valuable technique to save you tons of frustration!
