Christmas with Vellum

Its an exciting day for me as I have been accepted as a DT member for http://christmasstampin.blogspot.co.uk/
I am so pleased to join their team of designers and today want to show you my first card. The Challenge this week is to use Vellum on your holiday project. Here is what I came up with -
The image is a Molly Bloom stamp which I coloured promarkers. I used vellum strips which I torn using a Westcott ruler purchased many years ago from Lakeland when they used to sell lots of craft items. I also used vellum as one of the backing layers for the image. I distressed the edges using a gold versamark ink. I made a vellum snowflake using a spellbinders shapeabilities die - create a flake 1.
I inked the vellum with green and gold versamark and added the gold spotty brad. All the papers and vellum are from my stash. I finished the card with the Merry Christmas sentiment and the snowflakes on the image  which are rub-ons from Papermania -  a silent night.
Head on over to their blog -http://christmasstampin.blogspot.co.uk/ to enter this weeks challenge. Its never too early to start your Christmas cards.
