Digital Flower on Vellum (with a freebie) :O)


Box with Digital image freebie

Vellum–A Stamping Staple:

I reach for Vellum cardstock 9 times out of 10. I wouldn’t craft without it! I’ve used Heavy Weight Vellum for this, but the Digital Clear Vellum is a nice option too.

Here are some of the things done with vellum on this card:

Embossing Digital elements on Vellum:

One of the things that makes me drool over Heavy Weight Vellum is that you can print a digital image onto it & emboss. Just print, sprinkle clear (or other) embossing powder on & heat gun it!

I like to have everything ready (embossing powder & heat gun and a cookie tray to catch excess powder) and like to use the standard printer setting (medium quality) so the ink stays wet to hold the powder.


Layered Colouring on Vellum:

Another snazzy thing about the Heavy weight vellum is that you can colour on either side of it.Colouring from the back of your image gives a softness to it, then you can colour again on the front to get bolder colour. Vellum adores Copic markers and it’s a great way for beginners to colour with them, since Copics go onto Vellum like butter! :O) The ideal thing, for economy, is that the Heavy Weight Vellum lets you get a variation & blending of Copics with only a handful of colours (I used 6 copics here: Dark Bark, Aqua, Frost Blue, Warm Grey no1 & Putty)

One way to attach vellum:

If you have a hard time finding an invisible adhesive for vellum & you like to sew, then it can be a nifty way to attach vellum & get some embellishing at the same time. Layering vellum over coloured cardstocks or patterned papers can give you a neat effect too. I’ve seen some stunning cards that sandwiched things behind the vellum (like stamped & cut images or microbeads…)

The Digital Elements:

The Box:

This box is made using Leather Cardstock in black It’s a great weight for boxes and it has a lovely texture (with not too much shine, so it’s classy). That yummy blue is Pop Tones Cardstock (in Blu Raspberry.)

Here’s how the box was made:


Hope your day is full of crafty temptations!
