Glitter vellum gatefold card (Silhouette UK)

So today I have a project featuring glitter vinyl. This was featured on the blog a few weeks ago by many of the team, but at the time I was doing a video on a Silkscreen starter kit and didn’t want to interrupt it. This weeks theme is using the new Doming kit, which I wasn’t sent as I was sent the silkscreen starter kit. So instead, I thought I would bring you a project using glitter vinyl. If you love to add glitter to your papercrafts but without the mess, then this is perfect for you. Not only that, you can create lovely papercrafts combined with vellum as you don’t need to worry about any adhesive showing through. This was the ideal thing for making a Glitter vellum gatefold card.

Whatsmore, I am showing you how to trace a store design making it into a cut file and duplicating it to create an intricate design for this vellum gatefold card. You could easily change the colour of the glitter to any in the store, there is a wide variety and also change the card up for the occasion. These could also make beautiful invitations to a wedding.

Glitter vellum gatefold card overview:

For full step by step process of creating the design and cutting this out with your cameo, please see the link at the end of the post to Silhouette UK blog with there are screenshots of the process. 

To assemble the card, peel the vinyl design off the backing sheet an adhere down onto a piece of vellum. Trim the vellum down with no border around the edge, except leaving a 1/2″ flap along the outside vertical edge. 

Cut a piece of white paper to the same size as your vellum piece and adhere to the backside of the 1/2 flap on the vellum piece. Next, score along the vertical flap and fold to reinforce this fold. Appl some double sided tape to the flap and adhere to a white square card panel (my card worked out at 625″ square card).

Repeat the above process for the other side panel. Once both panels are adhered to the card base, adhere another white square card of the same size to the back to cover up your adhesive/flaps.

To finish, heat white emboss a sentiment onto a 3/4″ vellum strip using Opaque bight white embossing powder from WOW! Wrap this around the card front, folding at the edges and adhering the strip together on the back. Do not adhere the strip down the card back, adhere the ends to one another. Depending on how long your band and card is, you may have to attach another vellum strip to create the band at the back.

Mixed media Christmas card
