Having just taken down the Christmas cards from last year, here is the first one for next year.
It has taken me three goes to get this right but I am happy with it now.
I embossed a piece of vellum (or something similar) with a snowflake folder which gives a parchment craft like look without all the effort. It would show up better on a coloured background but as this card is to be white on white, I will keep that up my sleeve for another day.
I had to go away and ponder overnight. You can't stamp on the vellum as
it doesn't dry. I tried that and then had to trim off the bottom as I'd smudged the words.Then I remembered this corner trimmer which makes the edges look finished.
The vellum is only attached with a strip of double sided tape on the back of the card so it doesn't show through on the front.
I've never made a card with an overlay before but I don't think this will be the last time.
I've added a touch of glitter to the snowflakes and also to the words.
I'm not sure if you can see it but trust me it's there. It just adds a delicate sparkle.
I'd like to enter this in to the Merry Monday challenge. White on white.
and the AAA Cards challenge - use Glitter. I hardly ever use glitter, I'm not sure why not. Especially looking at some of the inspiration cards.
