Vellum tag

When I saw this challenge on Tag You're It I immediately thought of using vellum and embossing it to create a winter scene - I was delighted when the card came out the way I had imagined it!

I'm also going to enter this into 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown where the July technique challenge is to make a Christmas card with embossing on vellum.



Materials used:-
Tag die - Lawn Fawn stitched party banners
Distress inks for card - chipped sapphire, faded jeans and stormy sky
Snowflakes stamps - Stampendous
Sentiment - Jolly Holly Days from Simply Homemade magazine issue 48

Thanks for visiting my blog - I really appreciate your comments!  Margaret
