Get Well Soon

A friend of mine fell recently and now has a black eye,  her arm is in a sling and she is really bruised.  I thought I would send her a little love with the card design.

As you can tell for some reason I have recently discovered vellum and I am having a great time figuring out how to use it.

Would love to hear from you about what brands of glue or adhesive you are using that don't show through the vellum. 

Materials:
Cuttlebug - Polka Dot embossing folder
Poppy Stamps - Madera Corner
Spellbinders - Ribbon Banners
Vellum
Flowers are just a circle hole punched that I shaped.

  1. Fantastic card design Diane. Hand punched flowers are amazing too. Its really strange, as I have just got out of a drawer, a load of vellum. I used to use it a lot but haven't for a few years. I loved stamping and heat embossing on it. I Used a vellum glue but it still could be seen a bit. I mainly used brads in corners. Or you could put a flower or butterfly over the glue. I still have a product by Stix which is a sheet of tiny glue dots. I don't know if you can still get it. Try on Google. Hugs, Carol S.xxx

  2. Oh no, your poor friend Diane - and going near a hospital is NOT what you want to be doing at the moment! I do hope she's ok. Your card is sure to cheer her up no end, with those beautiful flowers (brilliant use of a circle punch!) in gorgeous colours. I have never found a glue that doesn't show through vellum and either fasten it on the back of the card panel or glue/tape wherever it's not going to show. I'll be watching these comments to see if anyone else has though! Vicky x

  6. Hi Diane, I hope your friend is ok. WHat a beautiful card :-)

    I've never had any luck with vellum and glue. The best I've found is perga glue by pergamano. I tend to glue behind embelishments or use brads, invisible thread or ribbon to secure. Hope this helps x

  10. Totally fabulous Diane, gorgeous colours and design. I have the leaf corner dies but I really don't like velum or maybe it is velum that doesn't like me. Can not believe the flowers are just a circle punch, brilliant.

  11. A beautiful card for your friend Diane and I hope she soon feeling better, I love the purple flowers, so clever using a little circle punch, and the embossed vellum goes perfectly. A really pretty card. As Vicky says it is best to glue behind added embellishments as I have never found a glue that doesn't show except perhaps if it was a dark colour then you might get away with it. The other way is to make a panel and wrap it round on two sides or as I think you have done here make a frame over the top to hold it. x

  12. Gorgeous, your poor friend, I am sure this will make her smile through all her pain. Love your use of vellum and the pretty corners are a great touch! I have found Xyron works great with vellum, not sure if they have that in England or not, the machines come in different sizes so you can do little stickers up to large sizes.

  16. What a gorgeous card! I'm sure your friend will feel better just looking at it! I love vellum & my favorite adhesive is Tombo Mono Vellum Adhesive runner, but I'm not sure they still make it.
