Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop - Ways With Vellum

Another week has flown by and it's time to say Hi again and join in with the weekly Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop. This week we are showing you "Ways With Vellum" and I've chosen a very simple method of heat embossing and die cutting vellum.


 My card is a Christmas Card based on the beautiful returning Designer Series Paper Stack, Feels Like Frost. The images in this stack are photographic and are stunning. I love the colours and the images. I've chosen to heat emboss the greeting onto Vellum by stamping with Versamark ink and applying White Embossing powder.


You can see in the detail photo that Vellum also cuts beautifully with the detailed Ornate Layers Dies.

Embossing on Vellum requires a little care when using the heat tool. Don't be impatient and take your time with the heating - if you get the vellum too hot it will bubble and buckle.

To complete the card I used 2 of the snowflakes from So Many Snowflakes Dies in the Handmade For You Mini Catalogue. The dies are so easy to use and cut beautifully. I cut them from some retired White Velvet card stock and placed a Rhinestone Jewel in the centre of each one.

This card is quick and easy.

I hope you have enjoyed this easy take on how to use Vellum. Now it's time to see how the other "hoppers" have used Vellum. Follow the list to see all the creative ideas.
