Non Traditional Christmas Card

A non traditional Christmas card--no reds or greens.... Decided to use two favorite colours---light blue and browns. Used blue card stock from Stampin Up and the Lovely as a Tree stamp set from them. Used SU Basic Brown ink for that and stamped the tree stamp onto the blue card front. Used SU vellum and used two sheets and then put that in the Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder and embossed those. Used brown ribbon from my stash. For the greeting I used "very merry" from the SU stamp set Short and Sweet. I used the Basic Brown ink again for that and then used the SU Word Window punch for that. Pop dots are behind the greeting for dimension. Wanted to keep this very simple so you notice the snow falling.

Oh I LIKE this card. Haven't worked with vellum. This turned out so elegantly, and so did the 2 others using vellum. Colors are so soft - just so pretty & lovely. TFS
