White, Black, Silver, and Gold

I love hoppin' with all these amazing stampers.  Each stop along the hop is full of extreme awesomeness.  This month we are sharing Christmas creations that include the Wintertime Vellum.  For this season you should have one of those 6" x 6" vellum stacks on hand.  The color combo is everywhere this year--white, gold, silver, and black.
My Merry Christmas card includes lots of lush yumminess.  I layered a piece of Corrugated White Cardstock on a Whisper White card base.  The next layer that adds such a sweet pop of style and interest is a piece of the Wintertime Vellum.  I think my favorite detail on the card is the wood snowflakes.  Notice the one on the left how it's smaller?  Just give one of the wooden Snowflake Elements a trim with your Craft and Rubber Scissors.
 A 3.25" x 6" piece of Wintertime Vellum is perfect to decorate a Petite Cafe Bag.  With the extra make a chunky accordion fold bow embellished with lots of scraps of ribbon.  Just fold back and forth every half inch, staple it in the center, and then flair out the sides to form a bow shape.
 This last picture is a closer look at the folded vellum under all the pretty ribbons.

  1. Love it all! You are a master at layering! The card and the bag are just beautiful!

  2. Love, love your creations! One tiny piece of advice... next time you cut out "Merry", (or any word), glue the pieces that come out back in on the card. In this case, it would be the little pieces in the "R's". You will be happy with the result.

  3. Wow Elizabeth, this is jaw dropping gorgeous!! Love all the layers and textures in both the card and the bag!! And the trimmed wooden snowflakes?? Genius!!

  4. I love the bling of the Glimmer papers, and that teeny snowflake! How incredible to think of chopping a wooden snowflake! Your card and Petite Cafe Bag are divine, Elizabeth. D x

  5. I love the negative image for the word merry. Such a nice touch. And your cafe bags are gifts themselves! Beautiful!
