Vellum and Washi Tutorial

I love combining my favorite products and watching them compliment each other.  Vellum and washi tape are two of my favorite things and they look so beautiful and soft when layered.  I have a quick tutorial for you showing how to make a fun tag using these two elements that you can either use as a focal point on a card, or let it stand alone.
 Step 1:  Attach strips of coordinating washi tape across a block of white cardstock.  Fold the ends of the washi under on the backside.
 Step 2:  Using a tag die, run your block of washi covered cardstock and your tag die through your die cut machine to create a tag shape.
 Step 3: Using the same tag die, cut a second layer from vellum.
 Step 4:  Using a small shaped die, such as a heart or star, die cut a window from the center of the vellum tag.  Attach dimensional adhesive on the bottom washi tape tag, in places where you’ll be placing embellishments.  These pop dots will show through the vellum, so I’ve positioned them where I know they’ll be covered up with an embellishment on the vellum layer.  Hope that made sense :)
 Step 5:  Adhere the vellum tag to the washi tape tag.
 Step 6:  Start embellishing your tag!  I used the OHDEERME April kit and used a long vellum sticker cut in two for my sentiment.  Notice how it is placed over the pop dots across the bottom…can’t see them, right?
 Step 7:  Finish with just a few more embellishments from the April Kit, an Enamel Star, etc.
 That’s it!  Super fun and I love the way I can use all of my favorite washi tape patterns and soften them with a layer of vellum.  Hope you’ll give it a try.
