Default Vellum Die Cuts/Transparencies

Does anyone here have any good suggestions for how to adhere vellum die cut transparencies to a card? I'm thinking that brads or eyelets might be the only way to do this, as glue or other adhesives would likely be visible through the transparency. Or I could staple them, I guess. I have so many pretty ones and would like to use them.

There are a couple of specific vellum adhesives - both tape and dots - but my personal experience is that none of them have been satisfactory. Some of them really are invisible but I've noticed with cards I kept and didn't mail, the sticking power is not good. I prefer to use brads, or use something like photo corners or flowers to cover where it's stuck. With transparencies I've had good success using a spray adhesive.
A vellum overlay can easily be incorporated using ribbon to hold it.

Sabrina,

Thanks for the advice. Maybe I'll give the brads or photo corners a go. Or perhaps the spray adhesive. Do you know the brand name of any good spray adhesives?

Angie, I've had great success with Zip Dry Glue. You can see a picture here where I adhered the vellum onto the stamped cardstock. Both the butterfly and the jar.

A very light coating of spray adhesive works great or use a Xyron machine. If it is a stamped image, you can use adhesive on the back of the stamped image and it won't show to the front. I have not had good luck with vellum tapes, hard to use and they still show through.

If you have a Xyron, that works the best and does not show through! LM

Thanks for the ideas, ladies! Maybe I'll give one or more of these suggestions a shot.

Another vote for spray adhesive or Xyron. Sometimes I can even use my ATG without it showing. You could also try applying a little bit of liquid adhesive behind an area that has a lot of design or color, if there is one.

At a rubber stamping convention in Mesa, AZ last November we found a glue stick by Tombow that actually works to glue vellum down w/o showing through! A miracle, right? I've never seen it in any stores, though. Has anyone else used it?

I wish I had saved a copy of the card I saw that used gold stickers similar to these across the corners of a vellum layer cut a bit smaller than the card front.

That gave me the idea to run a piece of cardstock (metallic or colored) thru the Xyron & then punch out a border or corner pieces to place part on vellum & part on card front to hold vellum in place.

Here are some corner stickers that could be used this way.

I use one tiny lil' dot of glue for vellum paper...and then always-always plan to have some type of embellishment to cover it! I use Aleene's clear gel tacky glue...remember ONE tiny dot...then the paper doesn't slip and slide!

Tim Holtz was teaching a class at CHA one year and he told us to try a simple glue stick, lightly applied. It has worked for me ever since
Good luck!

I always use Sookwang tape (also called Scor Tape) to attach vellum. It doesn't show through. See this card I made:

I have success with Stampin' Up glue stick. Just a tiny bit on the edge of vellum.

If you look at my bookmarks, I made one with a layer of vellum. I used a tad of SU snail adhesive, then once bonded I felted ink around the edges.

I've used the Scotch vellum tape with good results. The key is to use the tape on the item the vellum will adhere to, not the vellum. Be sure to burnish it on the cs well first. It helps to hide the tape better. If you use the tape on the vellum it will show.

Default Invisible search continues.......

When I was taking a scrapbooking class we use KRYLON spray adhesive. Spray can says - a strong permanent bond for paper and vellum.
Dries clear for invisible hold.
I have used it and was pleased with results!

Default Vellum adhesive

I use Tombow vellum adhesive snail to adhere all vellum works great. Also have used xyron for small pieces. Both are clear and cannot be seen. I got my Tombow vellum snail at Joann's.com, they also have a refill.

The best for me is Zip Dry glue or spray adhesive! Both work well. Zip Dry holds almost anything down even for long periods of time, I have projects that I have had for 2 years that look and feel just as if they were made yesterday. Zip Dry does not wrinkle paper and it holds embellishments like crazy, available on Amazon.com. Hope this helps! Happy Crafting

I've been making boxes with vellum/acetate windows in them, which requires gluing all four edges to be secure. Zip Dry does it, and it doesn't show through vellum. It is easy to get a super thin line with, too. If anything presses through to the outside, let it dry and it will roll off like rubber cement does.

Red face Adhering Vellum

I also had trouble until I tried vellum adhesive. I have tried several brands and find that the only real decision is which container I prefer to use, not the unseen results.

If you have access to a Creative Memories consultant or the website, they still have a product called frosted splits adhesive that I have used and it is invisible for all vellum work I have done for cards. I cannot speak to the permanency of it, but it does not show through vellum. I have purchased a large back up supply as Creative Memories is filling Chapter 11 to reorganize, and I am not certain they will have any product like this in future.

I just did two cards with vellum pieces that I could out using my big shot, and wet embossed one and dry embossed one on my blog. Feel free to look there. I used my ATG...I hid my glue more under another layer. That doesn't help all the time but I haven't been pleased with the vellum tape runners, I can still see them too so I hide as often as I can or use a brad!

I made my son's wedding invitations . I had to glue the vellum sheet at the top to the stamped white paper. I used Stamping Up's glue that comes in a stick like container. I don't remember the name on it,but it worked like a charm.
