Vellum Card Holder


This is a vellum card holder with coordinating cards that I made as a gift for my mother-in-law's birthday. She likes green and yellow, so I used mellow moss. I stamped fine lace on very vanilla cardstock and then wrapped some wide organdy ribbon around the card. I used the circle stamp from Think Happy Thoughts and the Monogram letter from Papertrey Ink to create the monogram.

I saw the vellum card holder on Lauren Meader's blog and modified it to fit larger cards. Here's a template of how I modified mine:



I started with an 8" x 11" peice of vellum and scored lengthwise at 1" from each side. Then I scored at 2", 3", 7 1/2", 8 1/2" widthwise. I cut on the score marks to the lengthwise score and then cut out the two pieces as marked.

I corner rounded the flap and then used craft ink to stamp my image. Make sure to wait for your ink to fully dry before putting the card holder together. I wrapped some organdy ribbon around the card holder to hold the flap down. Enjoy!
