Your Presents With Holiday Vellum

by Joanne James10. December 2015 08:05

Today it's time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary and this week we have a great sketch for you:


I'm still making Christmas cards and wanted something quick and easy that packed a punch, so I decided to go with the only piece of Holiday Fancy Foil Vellum I haven't used - the Christmas trees - and the 'Your Presents' stamp set:


I layered my vellum over a base of Mint Macaron, then added a panel of Whisper White edged in silver glimmer paper with my popped up presents, stamped in Real Red and decorated with either the 1/8" striped ribbon or a bow from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. I stamped my sentiment from the same set, punched this out with a 1 3/4" circle punch and popped it up on a dimensional so that it balanced out the gifts.

Do visit the other Design Team members to see how they interpreted this week's sketch; there's lots of inspiration over on their blogs too!

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

I simply love all the shine on your card!  You just can't beat this foil vellum when it comes to making a bold statement on your card!  Every element on your creations screams festivity!  I especially like the striped red package with the green striped ribbon!  So fun!!!

Love your card and the way you used the tree vellum. I have been at a loss as to how to use it without looking like "tree overload". Lol. This is perfect!
