Vellum Card Tutorial with Adhesive Ideas

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Vellum Card Tutorial with Adhesive Ideas

Whenever I share a card or project using vellum, one of the first questions I’m asked is how I stick it down!

There are a number of different ways you can ‘hide’ adhesive when using vellum, so in a change to my usual 3D project video, I decided to make a card and while doing so, show you 3 different ways to hide glue!

If you watch the video, I do show you my (very full) list of dimensions, but at the last second I decided not to read them all out, but instead, as promised, they’re all listed below for you. I *hope* I have the 8-1/2 x 11″ measurements right. As I don’t have the cardstock to work with myself, I have to work from a tonne of mental arithmetics, so forgive me if they’re wrong!

So please do enjoy the video that shows off the lovely Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay colours along with our Fancy Foil Vellums too

    Your beautiful cards are my addiction and why I am my own biggest customer of Stampin” Up! products. I have been on the fence about purchasing this vellum stack. However, you have made up my mind. I can barely wait to CASE this card. As always, thank you, Sam, for sharing your creativity.

  2. Elisabeth says:

    Thank you so much for your video and the ideas for vellum. On morning, in my train for my job in Paris, I appreciate the moments with you and all your beautiful cards and boxes.

  3. Hi Sam – thanks for yet another wonderful tutorial. I have just recreated your card in Melon Mambo and LOVE it. It was so easy and quick to put together and I used all three methods for sticking down the vellum. Keep up with your crafting and videos – you are so inspirational.

  4. Gorgeous cards Sam. I am loving this vellum stacks might have to add that to my order lol. I did some invitations a while ago and I used the plain vellum and to cover the adhesive i used rhinestones. They looked really good.

  5. Thanks so much for your ideas a sticking vellum, it’s a why didn’t I think of that moment! Beautiful ways of using vellum too I’ll be able to use my stash of vellum now.TFS again happy bunny this morning.

    Lovely cards and love those glue dots… good idea!

  7. Sam, a fourth way is to use the’ Fine Tip Glue Pen’ behind all the hearts on that Vellum paper to stick it down! They are hidden by the hearts and on the other Vellum papers, behind the design on those too!

  8. Lisa Emslie says:

    Love these cards! I always shy away from using vellum as I’m not sure what to do with it but this has given me a bit of inspiration!
