For this card, I stamped the ornaments in White Craft ink. (Make sure to let dry before doing the rest.)  Then, from behind, I traced with a stylus some parts that I wanted to highlight. (Trick: place your vellum on a soft surface such as the piercing mat). When you trace the vellum, it becomes white.  I also used the paper piercer to make little holes, to add some detailing. (No so obvious on the picture, can you see them?) I finished by adding small rhinestones. I attached the vellum on my card base with brads and glue it at the bottom. I stamp “Joyeux Noël” (“Merry Christmas”) on a piece of White cardstock and adhere it on top. When you adhere your vellum with Snail adhesive, you see it through, so by adding a piece over, you hide it. That’s my little trick!
