Clearly Christmas

What beautiful colors in the inspiration for us at the Curtain Call challenge!


And since it's called CLEARLY Christmas, I wanted to use something clear on my card.  I remembered a digital image from Jane's Doodles that I had previously printed out in several sizes on vellum, and that's where my card started.

Curtain Call Clearly Christmas

I colored 3 of the vellum poinsettias with green and blue markers, and stacked them together after cutting them out.  They were attached to a MFT stitched tag, which was stamped with a (now discontinued) The Craft's Meow sentiment from Holiday Poinsettia.  The tag was attached to a card base embossed with Cuttlebug's Victoria pattern, and I scattered some turquoise and green sequins.

I love the special look that vellum gives!

Thanks for stopping by!
