I fancied playing with vellum so I made a vellum card and then die cut a lot of the large panels to make the central part of the card and disguise glue etc. Some of these were in smoky slate rather than white but I think it all worked together.
On the front of the card I stamped the tress from Merry Moose a few times and then embossed them in white. Then used a blending tool and dark grey ink to blend over the top and then wiped the trees clean.
Next I asked the Joy word with a vellum shadow and white embossing onto the grey word. I decided to sandwich underneath the word and on top of the embossing the black and white ribbon to give some contrast and texture.
Then added the gems to finish off.
You can really see how the vellum is see through when the card is stood up albeit only semi-transparent.
