Golden Garden Acetate and Vellum Card

Have you ever made a card using vellum as the card base?   Stampin' Up! has Vellum Cardstock which is a good weight to use as a card base.  It is fun to use and  creates a card that is just a little bit different.


Front of the card:

Stamp happy from the Pretty Perennials stamp set in Versamark ink on Vellum CS and heat emboss using Gold Embossing powder.

Fussy cut the sentiment.  Attach it to the DSP.  I applied small dots of glue behind the embossing which hides the glue.

Attach the acetate over the DSP and use small dots of glue to secure the acetate to the DSP.  I applied dots behind the gold foiling on the acetate. 

Attach the DSP/acetate to the Petal Pink CS.  

Wrap and tie a bow using the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon.  Apply a few Metallic Pearls to the front.


  • Fine Art Floral DSP 3-5/8" x 4-7/8", 1/2" x 3-5/8"
  • Basic White CS 3-7/8" x 5-1/8"

Adhere another piece of Fine Art Floral DSP to the inside of the front of the card.  This will cover up the adhesive used to secure the Petal Pink CS to the front of the card.

Adhere the Basic White CS to the inside of the card.  Line it up so that it matches the Petal Pink CS and is not visible from the front of the card.  Stamp the sentiment in Versamark and heat emboss with Gold embossing powder.

Attach the strip of DSP.


  • Petal Pink CS  3-7/8" x 5-1/8"
  • Fine Art Floral DSP 3-5/8" x 4-7/8"

Adhere the DSP to the Petal Pink CS.  Adhere to the back of the card to cover up the adhesive.  Line it up with the Basic White piece on the inside of the card.


Using vellum as a card base requires a bit more paper since you need to cover up the adhesive that shows through due to the translucent nature of vellum.  I have yet to find the perfect adhesive for vellum.

The Fine Art Floral DSP and the Golden Garden Specialty Acetate will be retiring in a few days so be sure to check out the retiring list HERE.  The last time I checked both of these products were still available and the Golden Garden Specialty Acetate is 50% off!
