Vellum Panel Card

Hi! I am slowly getting back into the swing of things after taking some time off to take care of myself. Although this is my job, I am a full-time stay-at-home-mom first and foremost. I really needed to get myself back on my feet so I could care for those busy kiddos! I also am taking a much-needed vacation but still have a few things to share that I have been holding onto for awhile. A big thanks to my brother for holding down the fort while I was gone! (He helps me with work here and there – he is a computer genius and my biggest supporter.)

Today’s video is one I shared over on the WPlus9 YouTube channel, but I wanted to share it here, too. It shows how to create a vellum panel card.

I am always looking for ways to make the format of my cards unique… something other than a folded piece of cardstock. One of my favorite techniques is having a clear or vellum window panel. For this card, I used vellum to allow patterned paper inside to show through.

After using the Wplus9 Love Mom Layers dies set to partial die cut a half circle on white cardstock, I stamped a flower cluster with the Wplus9 Happy Wishes stamps and WPlus9 Inks. (Colors are in thumbnails below.) I added touches of gold/silver glitter embossing to the center of the flowers with a glue pen.

I created the vellum panel (using my favorite vellum) with a little strategic gluing. (Be sure to check out the video on how!) I put some old patterned paper on the inside of the card so it would show through. Rubbing a bit of Wink of Stella over the vellum added some fun sparkle and worked great!

I almost forgot to mention that the sentiments are from the Wplus9 That is All stamp set. This set is fantastic for building various greetings for all occasions. On some of the cards I heat embossing with gold glitter powder, and some with silver.

You could also try this same design with acetate instead of vellum.

  2. Thank you for this wonderful idea! You always come up with something new and different to take cards to the next level. I love it!! Hope all is well with you and your family. Take care of yourself, but know you are thought about and cared about!

  3. Hi Jennifer ~ I hope you’re feeling well….I, for one, have missed your cheery voice and updates! (Mike did a great job subbing!!) This card is simply gorgeous and I went right away to EH to put the heavy weight vellum from my Wish List to my Shopping Cart!! I love the look of vellum but always seems to have struggle using it in a way that looks quite “right” (in my opinion). Your sample is simply brilliant! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful creations and for adding in so many awesome tips and tricks (I never thought to use glue for small spots of embossing!!). Have a blessed day and continue to feel strong. ~HUGS~

    I’ll admit I miss your videos and blog posts, but family comes first, and everyone needs breaks and time off. I’m sure videos are time consuming. My poor blog is neglected more often than not, so I certainly never complain when other people don’t update their’s. I hope all is well with you and your cute family!
