Default What do YOU do with colored vellum?

A customer of mine ordered a package of RR 12x12 vellum by mistake (thought she was ordering cs), and gave it to me.
Besides just using it as layers in cards and pages, does anyone have any other good ideas for using this?

???
I've never tried the colored vellum, but maybe stamp on it using the vanilla craft pad & then emboss over the image.

I like to tear it, dry emboss on it, and/or stamp on it.

Oh, thanks! I hadn't thought of dry embossing on it. The colors I have would be very pretty to dry emboss some Christmas images on. Good idea, will do.

SU vellum is the only vellum I've found to make mini envelopes from. I usually have a tag coming 1/2 way out so you see part of the message on the tag above the envelope, but you can read the rest through the envelope. Then stick the whole thing on a card. The vellum envies also are great for gift enclosures- especially Sweet for baby cards. Other brands of vellum I've used tear.

Dry embossing is my favorite thing to do with it. I also layer with it.

It looks cool running it through a crimper!
