CTMH Technique Blog Hop: In Love with Vellum

Vellum is an elegant, translucent paper that adds class to any project.  It can, however, be a little difficult to work with because of its transparency.  Along this month's technique blog hop, you'll see some beautiful projects and learn some great tips for using this pretty paper.  (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Melissa's blog.  From here, you'll visit Darlys's blog next.)
My card uses the Inspired Words stamp set paired with Gimme Some Sugar paper pack and the Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 4 sketch #9.  To create the rough edge on the top and bottom of my vellum piece, I used my bone folder and my paper trimmer to score the edge.  The sentiment was inked in Bashful and then rolled in Tangerine.  The sentiment is mounted onto Bashful card stock and then Peacock ribbon.  When working with vellum, any adhesive I've ever tried shows through, so I hid my glue dots with the ribbon strip and sentiment.
This Chelsea Gardens card uses the same vellum techniques.  Don't you love how soft the Charcoal square becomes with the layer of vellum on top?

  1. This card is very pretty. I particularly like how you made a rough edge on the top and bottom of the vellum piece, it adds nice dimension.

  2. Very pretty card! I love the boldness of the pattern paper softened by the vellum.

  3. Love both cards, especially the second with butterflies and charcoal paper behind the vellum - Love the technique to create the rough edges. TFS

  4. So pretty! I love how velum can soften up a bolder pattern paper.

  5. I haven't used vellum in a while, thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Vellum, placed over the paper, gives the card such a nice appeal.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
