Timeless Tuesday ~ Vellum

Hello Flourishes Fans!  I am still making holidays cards this week as most of the ones I had created this fall and early winter got sold.  So if you are on my holiday card list this year, you may not be getting that card until the new year! Oh boy!  

It's time for another guest hosted challenge this week for "Timeless Tuesday".  Our lovely guest host, Greta Hess, is challenging us to...

My card today was very hard to photograph, so I apologize!  I used a lot of white on white. For my card base, I used a piece of Classic White Cardstock and then adhered a stamped and heat embossed piece of vellum using the beautiful (just retired this week... boo!) "Christmas Music" back ground stamp.

I also stamped my holly bough from the "Naturally Merry" stamp set onto vellum using Versamark and white embossing powder.  I flipped over my embossed image and then I use a stylus to mark or make the holly whiter by rubbing the back of it.  I framed it out with some die cuts using Classic White & Classic Black cardstock.

For my greeting, I used the "Happy Holidays" stamp from the "Christmas Classics" set and embossed it with black embossing powder and tied my tiny tag through and around my die cuts using some pretty Silver Metallic String.

Here's a closer picture of all the embossing and vellum layers...

So take a moment and check out what my fellow DT members and our guest designer have created this week... 
We'll be back with another Timeless Tuesday Challenge in TWO WEEKS.  Have a great time creating with vellum this holiday.
