Elegant Acetate & Vellum Cards

Hi everyone, today I have shared a tutorial showing you how I made these beautiful cards.


These acetate & vellum cards have a luxurious feel to them making them perfect for Wedding, Engagement and Anniversary cards.


I used the First Edition ‘Paris’ die set. This is a handy die set as it has images that can be used for many occasions…so although it has the Eiffel Tower and the word love, you also have the bottle of fizz & champagne glass, perfect for birthdays and the bicycle which can be used in a mothers day card or thank you as an example.

Shop the die set, available from my Amazon Storefront here.

Below you can see better the acetate front and the vellum sheet hanging down inside.


In my tutorial, I show you some handy tips to get the most from your dies and how to easily back your dies making them stand out more.


These cards are 6″ x 6″ but this style can be made in any size card you like.

The acetate I like to use is the 12′ x 12′ size by Docrafts. This is strong, making it perfect for allowing your card to stand up straight.

You can find the acetate sheets shown available from my Amazon Storefront here, or at Craft Stash here.

Behind the vellum I use I heat embossed a message and stuck it inside.

To make this card you will need…

A 6″ x 6″ card blank or a piece of 12″ x 6″ card, scored along the 12″ side at 6″ and folded in half.

1 piece of 6″ x 5.3/4 vellum. By having it slightly shorter it will be able to hang down when the card is stood up.

1 piece of 6″ x 5.7/8 acetate.

Stamps & dies to decorate.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.

I love the clean simplicity of these cards and think the big bow finishes them off perfectly.


Always layer up your dies, it gives depth to your cards and makes the dies easier to manage.


Thank you for stopping by today, have a wonderful weekend.

Happy crafting.
