In this post, we’re showing you just how versatile the Vellum Quote Pad can be! We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite uses for it below, read on to find out what…


Cool Celebration Card

First off, we’re showing you how to create this beautiful celebration card that any of your family or friends would be delighted to receive! We love how the vellum pad has been used as the focal point on this particular card.

What’s particularly great about any of the Dovecraft collections is that all of the papers and embellishments have been created with coordination in mind, which makes creating stunning papercrafts so simple. This card is a perfect example of how these collections work together to make something that is so pretty, so easily!


You Will Need:

  • Dovecraft Make a Wish Vellum Pad, 8” x 8” Paper Pack, Decoupage Pad, Puffy Stickers, Wooden Frame,
  • Dovecraft 6” x 6” White Card Blank


How to Make:

1. Take your card blank and cut the front to measure 8cm wide.


2. Cut a 14.5cm square piece of backing paper from the Make a Wish paper pack. We chose this pretty pink confetti design.


3. Next, adhere a 7.5 x 14.5cm piece of Make a Wish paper to the front of your card blank, layering it with a complementing design measuring 5cm x 15cm.


4. Cut your chosen sentiment from the Vellum Pad and adhere it carefully to the back of your wooden frame. Trim the edges of the vellum pad, if needed.



5. Adhere the thickest side of the frame edge to the front of the card.


6. Make up your chosen decoupage (we chose this beautiful cake design) and adhere it to the bottom front of your card for a touch of added detail.


7. Finish by adding a sticker in the top corner.


There you have it! How easy was that?! A stunning card in seven steps.

Why not also layer your vellum sentiment over a selection of papers to create this cool and colourful card?! So easy to create, we mat and layered the Make a Wish papers, before adding a doily and a banner cut from another complementing paper design. We then adhered the vellum sentiment to the banner as a finishing touch.


Gorgeous Gift Tag:

Add a stylish finish to your gift tags by adding a vellum sentiment. We’ve attached ours using a stapler, layering a selection of the Make a Wish papers for a cool, contemporary look. These gift tags look great on a handmade gift box – why not make your own from the Make a Wish papers with help from our video tutorial?


Pretty Planner Clips:

Add some glamour to your planner and create these cool clips to highlight your special events! We’ve taken a paperclip and adhered the vellum quotes to them to create these – so easy and will help you to remember exciting times.

Get your party on with these cool cake toppers! Perfect for any celebration, these are SO easy to create and will add an extra special touch to your treats.
