Something Old, Something New: Vellum Card

Today I thought it would be fun to take on a challenge: include something old and something new on the same project. Here is my take on the challenge. Can you tell which is the old and which is the new?

Here are the supplies I chose for my card: some new vellum products from the Sheer Metallic collection, and some old clear stamps and metal flowers from the Antique Chic collection.

I stamped the chandelier image on the vellum journaling card with watermark ink, sprinkled gold metallic embossing powder over it, and then heat embossed it.  Even though the stamp is older, combining it with the hot new metallic trend gives it a refreshed look!

I added some Metallic Washi Tape, and other bits and pieces to complete my card.  I love this challenge because it gets me digging into my stash of older products, and lets me use some of my favorite newer items too. Give it a try on your next project!

    • Hi Mary Lee,

      In this case the adhesive was added underneath the printed areas on the vellum so it wouldn’t show. If there aren’t any printed areas on your vellum you can cover the adhesive with embellishments or patterned paper. Hope that helps!
