Vellum – officially defined as fine parchment made originally from the skin of a calf, crafters use Vellum because it is smooth and translucent. I think it is made of plastic or something similar. Certainly not the skin of a calf any more. Vellum has been around for a very long time but it seems it has hit a peak lately in popularity. Why – well because it is so versatile, and, ok, awesome.
My card today certainly showcases Vellum. Did you know you can dry emboss vellum, die cut vellum stamp on vellum but my favorite, at least today, is to heat emboss on vellum. You have to be careful, and hold you’re heat gun further away than you might with paper. Also, keep it moving so as to not cause the vellum to melt.
I stamped vellum with the large image of the Wonderful Romance stamp set using Versamark, then heat embossed white embossing powder to get that lovely image. I colored the image, on the backside except for the tiny little flowers colored with Rich Razzleberry, those I did on the front.
This stamp set had a beautiful die set that coordinated with it, but unfortunately, that die set has sold out and is officially retired. But who needs it, when the stamp set is so beautiful on it’s own.
