Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Use Vellum

I know you don't ususally see me on Fridays, but I have a DT card to show you today...for the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge, where I'm one of the new DT members :0)

The theme of the challenge this week, is to use:

'Vellum'
And of course include some stampin'

There's no sponsor this week, but there's a parcel of 6x6 papers waiting for the lucky winnner.

I don't often use vellum...but bought some a few months ago after seeing several cards where the sentiment had been stamped on to vellum, then wrapped around the card, thinking I'd try it...so here goes. I picked an elegant, swirly Penny Black sentiment stamp, and stamped and heat embossed it on to the vellum. The paper is from the 'Countdown to Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye, and the snowflakes were cut from card and vellum using Cuttlebug and Marianne Designs dies, and held in place with a glittery American Crafts brad.


For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge.
