You're awesome - Alphabet - V

Friday January 27, 2023


We have a new challenge over at

Our letter this challenge is 
V - for VELLUM

I like vellum but I have issues with not being able to adhere it down .. I do have some vellum tape that you just put on the back and burnish so that the adhesive stays.. but being there's little texture to the vellum I find it hard to even get the it to stay.. of course the vellum tape is over 20 yrs. old.. lol that could be an issue. But the little placement of the left over diamond painting drills kinda help it stay along with the tape.  I used a scrap of DCWV paper and then used Stampin up thick vellum and Taylored Expressions leaf dies. The sentiment is heat embossed and from Stampin up along with the die. Thought great for a birthday, new job, some sort of accomplishment in life.

I agree with you on it being tough to get Velum to stick. I usually use well placed glue to get it to stick and then hide the glue with gems, sentiments and other embellishments. I love this gorgeous leafy die cut.

I totally get what you mean. it is indeed very difficult to process vellum on your card, because you always see the adhesive edge.
I usually solve it myself by sticking a rhinestone on it or putting an eyelet through it.
Thank you for joining our challenge with this beautiful card.
