Bah! Humbug! #40 - Using Vellum

This week I have reverted to type and made a vintage card - yes! The background paper is by Papermania, the stamp by Personal Impressions and the snow flakes by Crafty Individuals. Pretty simple really - gold embossing on the vellum , the image, stamped onto watercolour paper, coloured with pencils and the edges torn and inked. The sentiment is not as cock-eyed as it looks in the photo, I assure you! I had a flash of inspiration when I was mounting the card and punched some holes with a hole punch to show the backing card through.
I hope you like my card and please feel free to leave a comment - I appreciate them all.Posted by Picasa
