What do I do with vellum?

Without a clue I was when I received a pack of coloured vellum. I never worked with that type of paper and had to think hard what to do with it. I love making little envelopes and pockets - so useful for any type of projects... well the idea was there. Pockets for cards I make... so that when people receive the card they can already see what's on it without taking it out of the envelope/pocket... at least that was my way of thinking :)

Anyway here is the result. The embossing worked well... at least with most embossing folders, some of the Tim Holtz folders make a deep impression and go right through the paper. You need to play around a bit :) I also made some flowers.. especially the Tim Holtz rosette flower works perfect!!

There is a slideshow of this on youtube


  1. I think it's great! I've never really worked with vellum, not adventurous enough!
    I have a little candy on my blog if you are interested.
    Hugs xx

  2. Nice creations...I love the blue/purple one...the embossing looks so great.
