YAY I’ve got tips for vellum stamp layering on handmade wedding cards.
Warning! You are going to seriously NEED this Perennial Essence Suite when you see this simple design! Designer paper, stamps, a punch, cute flower centres, coloured vellum…there’s so much to create beautiful designs.
See for yourself…
Was I right?
What’s the first thing you notice about this card? How about…
- gorgeous Impressionistic designer series paper?
- stamped, punched and curvy 3D flowers?
- perfectly placed and beautifully stamped sentiment banner?
- fuzzy yellow flower centres? or
- airy stamped and layered background flowers?
No matter which one is first, the entire design is one the happy couple will love. Mix it up with colours of the wedding party and you’ve got a winning card they keep forever.
Let me give you my top tips for vellum stamp layering so you can recreate this design too.
Tips for Vellum Stamp Layering on Handmade Wedding Cards
1.Choose your patterned paper background and vellum in colours that coordinate perfectly. Here the vellum is Petal Pink on a designer paper with soft Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Blackberry Bliss and Daffodil Delight.
2. Stamp vellum with darker coloured dye-based ink (like Flirty Flamingo Classic from Stampin’ Up!) so it stands out and doesn’t fade into the paper.
3. Let dry thoroughly so the colour remains vibrant. (If you can’t possibly wait, give it a shot with setting 1 of your heat tool to dry. Alternately turn your paper upside down and rub lightly onto a piece of scratch paper.)
4. Curl the edges of each flower by running your Bone Folder over top BEFORE you glue together. (See that technique in this video.) Punch out and layer one on top of another with one glue dot.
5. Glue directly top of another set of stamped flowers with for even more dimension. (Use darker colour ink for your bottom flowers so it peeks through the vellum element.)
A simple matted banner in the same colours stretches out from behind the popped-up stamped flowers.

You can find the Perennial Essence Suite on pages 106-108 in the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue. I used every part of the suite today, except the organdy striped ribbon for this card. Stampin’ Up! makes it easy to add it to your order all at once, just by clicking right on this image.
But maybe you already have some of these items at home. Here’s everything else your can purchase individually.Tips for Vellum Stamp Layering on Handmade Wedding Cards
