Snowflake Vellum Christmas Card

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. 

Crafting Tip

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!

Getting a new stamp set, bundle, or Designer Series Paper is exciting! It’s fun to rip into the package and start creating immediately. But oftentimes, you’re stumped. Just what are you going to do with the supplies you just purchased? Sometimes you head to Pinterest, and sometimes you use Google to help you find samples. Additionally, get other ideas by participating in a card swap.

That’s just one of the fun activities my team of Kim’s Paper Krafters participates in. (Click here to read about the great Starter Kit special and also discover how to become a member of my team.)
