In this thread I showed off my first draft of my DIY Invitation suite, and at the time I was planning on glueing vellum on the bottom of all the inserts like so (the circles on the bottom):
Yeah, well, I didn’t realize that glue and vellum don’t really get along. So now I have no idea what to do on the bottom of all my inserts! I don’t just want to print the circles, because I think that will be way too boring. I have a cricut, I’m getting a manual embossing machine, and I have experience with stamp embossing…so ladies, what are some ideas of what I could do?
Please help…the creative side of my brain is just not coming up with anything!

@PinkPinstripes: Thanks for the idea, but I think any adhesive will look kind of weird behind the vellum (you can see it). I meant alternative ideas for a design that adds interest/texture/anything other then vellum circles.

I don’t think you need anything. Frankly, I like when the inserts are a little plain because the highlight should be the information. But if you did wanna jazz it up, I think using your cricut would be nice…or purchasing a nice stamp, or finishing it off with a piece of clip art (like a flourish).

Yeah, I think I want texture more than anything. Which is why I likes the idea of the vellum more than just printing circles right on there. I might have to play around with embossing once I get my embossing machine.

What about spray adhesive? Spray the back of th circles and stick them on…. I don’t think the adhesive would show then…

I think embossing or flock or something could work well?
I have given myself the task of making damask flocked paper for my invites. Eeeks!

There is a special adhesive that is made specifically for vellum and I have had good success with it; however, if you don’t want to go with that, you could get some nice cardstock and use that instead.
