    1. So glad you like the file:) I am happy to hear that you used them as gift card holders. I had originally thought of making them for this purpose, but thought I had been releasing too many gift card holders lately;) Thanks for your support! Have a happy day:)

    1. Hi there and thank you for your purchase:) The vellum pack that I used is from the Paper Studio- 12x12 clear. It doesn't have the gsm marked on it. I am attaching a link to Hobby Lobby where I purchased it. Thanks so much! http://www.hobbylobby.com/Scrapbook-%26-Paper-Crafts/Paper-%26-Cardstock/Vellum/12%22-x-12%22---10-Sheets-Clear-Vellum-Paper-Pack/p/111222

  5. Hi:)
    No problem at all.
    The vellum is lighter than cardstock but heavier than copier paper. The package also says clear.. but I would describe it as frosted. I think any vellum would work as long as it is transparent enough to let the candle light shine through:) Hope this helps. Thanks again:)
