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

It is always good to try something you don't like but will not be rushing out to buy Vellum  Laughing

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
