Playing with Vellum

October 25, 2021

Karen here today, sharing a couple cards I made using wet emboss technique on vellum. I know that this technique has been out there forever and ever, but I just forgot how pretty it can be.

My first card uses one of my favorite dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs – the Penguin. So cute, and so easy to make! He is cut with black cardstock and 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. The feet and nose are colored with YR14 Copic marker. I used a hat from the Santa die and colored it with R37. I cut the pieces with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive just to make things simpler to assemble. I also backed the Vellum panel with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to turn that panel into a sticker. (Then you can’t see the adhesive!) The sentiment (from the Classic Christmas Special Kit) is wet embossed with black. Some black Nuvo drops finished up this card.

For this second card, I used the snowflakes from the Classic Christmas Special Kit (and the sentiment too, embossed in gold). Again, I added 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to the back of the vellum before cutting it with a Fitted Circle die. It made adding it to the larger circle so easy. I added a Bead String with some White Craft Drops. I added some Gold Craft Drops to the snowflakes too.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Craftily yours, Karen

    Karen, I have a couple of questions that I hope you can help me with. I have never heard of “wet emboss technique on vellum.” I tried to Google a “How To” with no luck. Also how do you attach vellum? I know to with brads and such but is there a glue? Thanks for your help and can’t wait to create the cards you shared.
