Mod Squad Holiday Card Challenge


Here's my card for this week's Mod Squad challenge - to make a holiday card using vellum & acetate. The snow-swirled tree image was heat embossed with white ep on a piece of pink vellum, and matted with a piece of cranberry card stock. I attached the vellum panel with red and wine colored mini brads, and then added some punched acetate snowflakes attached with white and silver mini brads. The background paper was generously shared with me by a sweet friend, and I loved the non-traditional colors and little Christmas trees in the background, so this card was built around the dsp. I added a piece of snowflake-embossed vanilla card stock with a piece of sheer cranberry ribbon, and some vanilla satin ribbon tied into a knot. The sentiment panel was done with cranberry ink on vanilla, and the ends were done with a mosaic punch.

I may have another card to post later on today, so stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

A stunner for sure. Love the non-traditional colors, and that is one awesome vellum stamping & embossing. The red 'ornaments' you decorated this embossed tree with, really pop out the image too. Lovely papers. Well done. TFS
