Cre­at­ing With Vel­lum

CardMaker - - Tips & Techniques - By Kim­ber McGray

Have you seen all the great projects in this is­sue that fea­ture vel­lum? Vel­lum is a smooth, translu­cent pa­per that is not as por­ous as card­stock. Th­ese prop­er­ties make it per­fect for lay­er­ing over col­or­ful pat­terned pa­pers. It can also be used cre­atively to cre­ate your own em­bel­lish­ments. While vel­lum has been around for years, it's a fun medium to ma­nip­u­late and use in fresh ways on your projects. In this ar­ti­cle I will demon­strate three unique ways to in­cor­po­rate vel­lum into your next card de­sign. My projects show how to stamp and heat-em­boss on the vel­lum, stamp on the front of plain vel­lum and color on the re­verse side, and also how to cre­ate cus­tom em­bel­lish­ments with fun printed vel­lums.
