Vellum can be used in so many different ways. It adds a touch of elegance to almost every project in which it is included. I always tuck a card into each order that I deliver, as a little thank you for the business, and this time I decided to make a Christmas card.
I wanted to keep it very simple but, of course, I wanted it to have a WOW factor as well. With that in mind, I chose to use the Northern Flurry embossing folder on Vellum cardstock before stamping the little bear from the White Christmas stamp set in the lower right corner. Using an embossing folder on Vellum is really effective. The embossed lines become white where they're raised. With the snowflakes of the Northern Flurry, that makes quite a winter statement.
I came to a grinding halt with my colours. The Vellum was the easy part as was my decision to back it with a layer of Soft Sky. After that, however, I waffled between having a base of Naturals White with a frame of Lost Lagoon around the Vellum combination or having a base of Night of Navy with a frame of Marina Mist around it. Finally I made both and would say that I probably like the one with the Naturals White a bit more by a very slight margin. What do you think?
I've coloured the little bear from the reverse side of the vellum using my Chalk Marker, added several rhinestones and a snowflake sequin. The sentiment is from the hostess Good Greetings stamp set.
