Well it’s been a while but I thought I had better come back and catch up.
I would like to share these cards we are making for this week’s workshops. The title is “Vellum & Velvet” – two of my favourite papers to use but sometimes a little tricky to work with.
I absolutely love velvet paper, it is so lush and strokable. It has a plush velvety texture and the colours are really rich. It embosses beautifully with folders and can also be stamped and heat embossed. It die cuts really easily as well.
Be aware though – all velvet papers are not the same, I like SEI’s paper.
Similarly, vellum can be embossed with folders but you have to treat it gently and stretch it gradually or it can split. Again, heat embossing works really well too.
