Using Kaszazz Vellum {Day 1}

Old Bear Vellum Overlay Card

Hey everyone,
I have had some fun today, I am no expert when it comes to Vellum, so I tried a heap of idea's and techniques today. Some weren't so when I carefully painted with water colours...But I have managed to make 2 cards (you'll see the other tomorrow) that I think turned out very nice.
Today's is a simple overlay, I have stamped {904LK} Old Bear Large onto {1913} A4 Vellum using the {72010} Ancient Coal Inkpad - Coal Black, trimmed and then torn the bottom edge. I have then secured this to a piece of SB Paper - Ebony & Ivory - {4798} Ribbon / Stripes using mini brads from the {4737} Embellishment kit - Aged Copper & again trimmed and torn the bottom edge. Matted onto a Mahogany A5 card from the {9878} Castaway Card Pack, I think this card looks stunning for it simplicity.
I have already checked out all the talented papercrafter blogs that have joined our war, very impressive !!!! Loads of fantastic ideas for you all to get your creativity flowing.

Don't forget to leave your comments this week I have (3) 12 x 12 Vellum's up for grabs
Today's question is can you tell me what Vellum was originally made from ?


  1. I just love the teddy bear range. Very cute!!

  2. oops forgot the answer to the question. Hehehe.

    It was originally made from Parchment Paper.

  3. Don't forget me blog is up and running and have 2 vellum projects up for the week. My blog address is
    I love this bear card...simple yet effective!

  4. Love the teddy bear range. Wonderful design. Had never thought to stamp them on vellum.

  5. I love this card, but then again I am a big teddybear collector, I need an extra room to hold all my collection. I even downside when I moved interstate.
    Vellum was originally from animal skins mainly calf ,lamb and kids(goats).
    Modern imitation or "paper vellum" is made from plasticized cotton


  6. I love this card, I think anything that has a teddy on it has that special something that appeals to most people.

  7. Very cute, simple, love it!!! I haven't got this particular stamp as yet, but I will make it up with the Becky Bear Large. I have that one. Thanks for the idea. Cheers, Tina
