Here’s the card I did, love the CAS design with the sparkle from the Holidays Fancy Foil Striped Vellum Paper at the bottom!


CCMC380 Cozy Christmas

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Real Red, folded in half.
  • On top is a 5-1/4 x 4 layer of Basic Black Cardstock.
  • On the 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Whisper White, the 5-1/4 wide Holidays Fancy Foil Vellum was cut on a curve and adhered in the corners with Mini Glue Dots.
  • The greeting was stamped with Real Red in the upper right corner.
  • The cozy cottage was stamped with Black Archival Ink on Whisper White, then cut with the 2-1/4 Circle Framelits.  It is adhered to a 2-1/2 Circle of Smoky Slate cardstock and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Some Dazzling Details was applied to the snowy rooftop and the snow on the ground and in the trees…lots of sparkly goodness!
  • Finally, some extra bling from the Metallic Black Stars was added to the front.

What a unique way to use the striped vellum! It really catches the eye. The stars around the house plus the stripes really spotlight the little house. Beautiful!

So festive, that foil vellum is gorgeous! I especially love the shaped edge on the red striped piece, it really ties the circle and sentiment together.
