Vellum Anniversary Card for Little Red Wagon #684

It's Kate's turn to choose the Little Red Wagon challenge this week and she's saying, 'You Won't See Me', which means she wants to see vellum or transparency on our projects. 

My contribution is this anniversary card I made for my husband, using the Mistletoe Kiss digi from Di's Digi Stamps. As our anniversary is in December, I often choose winter/Christmas images for his cards, e.g. these past Deer Duo & Snowman Couple cards.

I used a clear background digital overlay (from the now defunct Tactile Studio) and printed it on the vellum, then glued it against a solid white die-cut, mounted on black cardstock. I used my omnipresent ric-rac die and some matt enamel dots for embellishment. The sentiment was created with Channel font.

Dig out your vellum/transparency sheets and come link up with us!
