Embossing trick for vellum Mother’s Day card

Considering all of the questions I hear about different ways to adhere vellum without leaving your tape visible, there are an equal number of solutions. We are crafty and resourceful. Depending on your card type, covering up glue dots behind vellum can be done with sequins or enamel dots. Similarly, you can also use a ribbon tied into a bow.

But sequins and embellishments and bows don’t always fit with your card style! Therefore, I made this Mother’s Day Card to show off another of my favorite techniques! It’s quick, easy, and no special tools beyond your normal embossing powder and versamark ink.

Vellum is one of my favorite papers to use for card-making. It’s semi-clear and you can see pretty papers and textures behind it while still separating layers. Incidentally, the best feature of vellum can also create a potential problem: allowing you to see your adhesives behind it!

Beyond adding sequins or embellishments to cover the adhesive spots that show through, I also have another embossing trick for vellum that I often use.

Watch below for how I easily use my embossing powder to add a border that’ll cover up any adhesive on the back, dimensionals or tape!
