Snowflake Vellum Christmas Card
I’ve had this gorgeous Snowflake 12 x 12 Specialty Vellum sitting in my craft room for months. It’s time to use it! (Find it on page 40 of Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.) For $10, you receive six sheets, two each of three designs, including iridescent foil and white flocking.
On this Christmas card, I use a piece of the Snowflake Vellum with the foil details. I’ve let the beautiful paper do most of the work. I layered it on a piece of Silver Foil and added a sentiment from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set, heat embossed with silver, and die cut with a label from the Labels Aglow Dies. In addition, I topped it off with a ribbon created with the silver elegant trim and Basic Pearls colored with Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends.
Sometimes it’s tricky adhering vellum to a card front — especially a piece this large. You have to try to hide the Glue Dots or adhesive underneath some of the front elements.
For this card, I cut a piece of Stampin’ Up!’s Adhesive Sheets to just under 5 x 3 3/4 inches (the size of the vellum layer). I adhered the sheet to the back of the vellum and then layered it on a piece of Silver Foil measuring 5 1/4 x 4 inches. The rest was easy. Just embellish the front and send!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Be sure to check out all the other stampers and leave a comment with the hashtag #stampitcontest.
