Vellum 3 ways

Have you ever tried Vellum? I love what we can do with the thicker vellum. It allows you to emboss, both heat emboss and dry emboss. We did both in our Wednesday morning and Friday evening classes.

This gorgeous card was created by running the vellum through the embossing folder, turning it over and sponging on the back. We started out with the softer pink all over then, sponged a centre in a darker shade, lastly we rubbed a dark Fresh Fig right in the centre.

The shape was then cut out following the embossed edge. It was then adheared to the front of a Whisper White card with our multipurpose Tombo glue.
Here is my tip on gluing on vellum: Run the Tombo all around the edge of the vellum and then sponge or rub with your finger to spread the glue. This works a treat and you can't see any glue.

This card, we embossed with copper. The secret of heat embossing on vellum, is to always warm up the heat tool first and then start heating the back of the vellum before directly heating the front.

Finally we dry embossed the vellum and this time we used the vellum as the entire card. Of course because you can see through the vellum, all panels need to have the oval adhered to hide the glue.

So what do you think? Why not try making your own, I'm sure you and the recipient of the card will love it.
