Tech Tip with Jennifer
Hello Scrapbook Circle friends! It’s time for this week’s tech tip, and I want to share with you my love of vellum. The exclusive Scrapbook Circle printables for October are adorable and I knew I wanted to use them to make a few cards. Printing on vellum adds an interesting element to projects and gives them that little bit of extra pizazz.
First up is the “Hello” card that I made using the yellow Dear Lizzy paper from the Out and About add-on along with the Oakley Avenue patterned paper and 3×4 cards included in The Weekender main kit.
To begin, I printed the October printables on a sheet of vellum. Make sure you adjust your printer settings as necessary and let the vellum dry completely before handling it.
I created a base for the card by layering the patterned papers. Next, I cut the blue lined strip from the vellum and wrapped it around the front of the 3×4 card. Next, I fussy cut the leaves from another Oakley Avenue card, punched a hole near the top of each, strung them onto the twine, and wrapped around the 3×4 card. I attached this to the layered patterned papers and then attached the entire piece to white card stock.
For the second card, I used the red 3×4 journaling card from the printable. This was layered with the Dear Lizzy papers and a strip of chevron paper from Simple Stories’ Reset Girl.
With the papers attached to the card stock base, I adhered the Paige Evans wood embellishments to the front. Next, I filled the circle with puffy stickers from Dear Lizzy to give the card a fun, whimsical feel.
The finished cards are fun and can be used for just about anyone or occasion. Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you are inspired to create!
