Vellum Circle Window Card

A Vellum Circle Window Card is great for a little hello and also uses a fun technique for vellum. It makes it look like you are looking through a window.

I love using vellum for card-making, but it might be underused in my craft room! It’s semi-clear and you can see pretty papers and textures behind it while still separating layers.

Vellum can be used for popping up a DSP feature, help a sentiment stand out, shaker cards, and embossing, but have you ever tried to color it from the back so it looks like a window?

It’s a great technique that can be used in many different ways for your projects!

How to make a Vellum Circle Window Card:

Cut your cardstock:

  • Petal Pink
    • 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”, scored at 4-1/4” for your cardbase
    • 1” x 4” strip
    • Scrap for circle window frame
  • Lemon Lolly: 3” circle
  • Vellum: 2-5/8” circle (use punch)
  • DSP: 4” x 5-1/4”

Create the Vellum Window:

  • Stamp your water scene on the vellum with black staz-on ink, and let dry. Then flip the vellum over and color the back of the sun and water with your blends. Punch out the scene with your punch (if you haven’t already).
  • For the window frame, I punched out a large circle from Petal Pink, and then die-cut a smaller circle from it’s center. Adhere this to your vellum piece using small dots of glue.

Last Steps to put the card together:

  • Next, adhere your strip of Petal Pink to the center of your DSP, and then adhere your DSP to your card front. Then adhere the yellow circle over the pink strip.
  • Lastly, use dimensionals to attach your window to your card front in the center of the yellow circle.
