A Silver and Baja Christmas

I love the look with a vellum overlay - it just really softens the whole look of the card. If you click on the word 'Christmas' next to Labels at the bottom of the post, you will be able to view my other Christmas cards and those that I've kreated with vellum.
I've made MANY cards with the Snow Swirled set and the snowflakes on the vellum overlay are just a perfect touch. This card started with the Snow Swirled Christmas tree inked in VersaMark and stamped on Whisper White and then heat embossed with Silver Embossing powder. Ticket punched the corners of the Whisper White and adhered it to a Baja Breeze base. Inked Merry Christmas, from Holidays and Wishes, in VersaMark and again heated embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. Stamped Whisper White snowflakes, from Snow Swirled, randomly on my vellum piece as well as the sentiment and then heat embossed the sentiment again with Silver Embossing Powder. Placed some Crystal Effects in the middle and on the tips of the snowflakes and then sprinkled on the glitter for the last pizazz I want on my Christmas cards. Used the Scallop Edge Punch to decorate the edge of the vellum and then added two silver brads in each corner to hold the vellum in place without adhering it down. I wish the picture did it more justice, but not having the vellum 'glued' down made it difficult to get a good picture. Hope it gives you some inspiration!!

For now, go kreate

I just love it Kim! I love the softness the vellum gives the card as an overlay. I need to try this too! Thanks for the inspiration. Have a good one!
