NaBloPoMo Day 4: Vellum Special Season Card

Today’s card is also made with Vellum. I embossed the Vellum with the Northern Flurry embossing folder. The snowflakes really pop out! On the layer underneath, I stamped the Christmas tree from Special Season in Smoky Slate and sponged Pool Party all around. With some color on the layer under the Vellum, you can see the embossed snowflakes even better. I used a Silver ribbon to attach the Vellum on the white cardstock (with a little Snail adhesive underneath.) Some rhinestone jewels add some “bling” for a nice finishing touch. The greeting is from “Voeux Mignons”(“Teeny Tiny Wishes”), stamped in Island Indigo directly on the Vellum.
