A Vellum Christmas...


Welcome to another Sensational Saturday here at Sugar Creek Hollow where the challenge this week was certainly a challenge for me as well, I believe this is the first card that I have ever used vellum on.

I wanted to create a Christmas card, that I knew for sure since the holiday will be here before I am ready and I am hoping against hope to have my cards ready to go on time.
I embossed a piece of softly tinted vellum with a Cuttlebug embossing folder to create a frame for my image which was stamped using Stazon and then heat set and laid aside to dry well. That beautiful "Silent Night" sheet music is a digital stamp that I purchased a while back at Gingerloft . I have a couple of other beautiful scenic images from them that I plan to use before long. I sponged the edges of the music sheet with distress ink and then attached my vellum to it with a couple of Stampin' Up snaps.


I hope you will give this one a whirl and show us what you can do with this material....the other girls at Sugar Creek have some beautiful ideas to share with you, so be sure and stop by for a visit.

I hope you are seeing this (scheduled with blogger) and if you have missed me posting, Rick and I have been away for a few days and will be back soon, so look for me to stop by then for a visit.

Enjoy your weekend!
