April 2014 -Vellum

This month the challenge is to use vellum/parchment in your Xmas card, along with one of the themes you haven't yet used.
Enjoy.

I do like vellum but have difficulty attaching it to card as the glue usually shows. At one time I had some sticky stuff for vellum - I wonder where it is! Margaret

Very Happy I have to look for mine as well me and vellum don't see eye to eye.

I tend to use brads and eyelets to fix it -never found a glue that is really invisible

Well done Becky and Vonny for the lovely cards.  Here is mine - I got inspiration from Anita who is this week's guest designer on Addicted to CAS. I liked the idea of wrapping the vellum around a card panel and inking it with distress inks -didn't know you could do that. Very pleased with the final result. Margaret

And here is another card using vellum but no stamping! I got the idea from a library book - the "tree" is drawn on the white card and the gems stuck to the vellum. I found this vellum I'm my stash - it has music printed on it which doesn't show up well in the photo. Margaret

I told someone today that we are making Xmas cards throughout the year and she looked at me with amazement! Shocked
margaret rorie

I think it's a great idea - looking forward to having loads of cards made by November! Margaret
Mickie

I've had that response from people too. We'll have the last smile though.

Not sure which category it will be in.  Sorry Vonny, I was concentrating too hard on what to do with vellum and omitted to look at the categories Embarassed

No problems Mickie -perhaps I should have an "and anything else" category  Laughing Lovely colourful card
Mickie
