Using a vellum overlay and how to adhere it to your card.


Hello, and welcome to today's project. Flu season has arrived, and I was down for the count with coughing and sneezing all last week. Luckily for me, Paul took over some of the grocery shopping while I was ill, and kept me well-provided for with lovely cups of tea and sympathy. Gotta love that man!

I love stamping on vellum, and this card using the Get Well Soup stamp uses a couple of neat techniques I wanted to share with you.

Firstly, the background is Designer Series Paper, adhered to a whisper white card base.
 The image is stamped in versamark ink, then white embossing powder is sprinkled over the top (remember to swipe the vellum with your embossing buddy first) and heat set using the heat tool. When doing this make sure to heat the back of the paper quickly as well so it doesn't curl up!
Colour the soup with a so saffron marker, then adhere the vellum with a strip of washi tape.
Adhere a thick bakers twine bow with a glue dot or liquid tomboy multi adhesive.

Another way to  adhere a vellum overlay would be with some glue dots, and then cover the dots with rhinestones, pearls or enamel embellishments.

I hope you found this helpful.
Have a wonderful day,
