Check out the video for all the details on how to add Zentangle® to vellum letters. As a bonus learn how to adhere vellum without any trace of adhesive!

Create the Card & Monogram

I started with a 5.5 x 8.5-inch piece of Coral Stardream Metallic cardstock that I had in my stash. The color and finish of this cardstock are so dreamy! The finished card will be 3.5 inches square so you could start with a piece 3.5 x 7 inches. That’s totally up to you!

Die cut scored paper with 3.5 inch square die.

Score the paper, fold the card in half, align the square die so that one cutting edge sits right above the fold, and run it through your die cutting machine. This will create a 3.5-inch square folded card.

Using Altenew Mega Alphabet Dies I cut 3 letters from Curious Translucent Iridescent Gold Paper.

Adding Zentangle®

Start by outlining the vellum letters with pencil then outline the pencil leaving a few mm of space between the ink line and pencil line. This will create an ink frame around the vellum letter.

I kept things simple by limiting the number of Zentangle® patterns to flux, pokeroot, and tipple.

Best Vellum Adhesive Ever

When determining the best option to adhere the vellum to these little lovelies, I considered a few different types.

Previously, I used small dabs of Ranger Multi Medium Matte with success, but I thought that might be problematic with the size of these letters and I’ve heard that adhesives like Stick-It can leave visible webbing.

So, I grabbed my new favorite adhesive for sentiments the Nuvo Large Glue Pen and it worked like a dream!! The nib is so wide that it was able to cover the letters in 1 swipe.

The vellum is thin, so while it did curl up when getting wet, that wasn’t an issue at all. There are two main reasons I feel this is the best option for adhering vellum. 1) there was absolutely no visible trace of adhesive once the letters were applied and 2) the letters were repositionable until fully pressed down!

I was seriously excited to share this with you all and I hope you find it helpful!!

That’s a wrap, you guys! I hope you feel inspired to create! Thanks for stopping by and until next time, Breathe · Ink · Inspire.

    Beautiful cards Amber!! Thanks for the tips for adhering vellum, I’ve had problems in the past.

  5. Andrea Hastilow says:

    These are so beautiful. They would work as cards or thank you or place markers, such a pretty pattern. How did you get into this style of creating designs ? I have been ill in hospital just lately & am now on enforced bed rest, I was brought a small zentangle set as I gift but have no clue where to start. Can you point me in the correct direction please ? I would love to try after seeing your work today x

    1. Thank you, Andrea! I’m sorry to hear you’re in hospital. Zentangle is great for the soul. I got into it when I was very ill as a way to decrease stress and heal. I was so inspired I became a Certified Zentangle Teacher. There are more videos on my site, I also have a Zentangle for CardMakers class under classes. Some good beginner resources are tanglepatterns.com, zentangle.com, and on YouTube Melinda Barlow, CZT has great instructional videos too. On Amazon I recommend The Great Zentangle Book by Beats Winkler, CZT. That should give you a good start. Thanks for stopping by and happy tangling!!

  6. These are so elegant!! Definitely a great wedding decoration!
