Vellum Inspiration at Unstampabelles Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.  I have been in my crafty room cracking on with christmas cards and DT work.  My daughters have now informed me of their requirements for christmas cards so lots of quick and easy designs will be in order lol.

This month I am guest designer over at Unstampabelles Challenges.  You can enter any creation you like but no stamping is allowed.  There is a great prize on offer so why not join in.  Our theme for this month is
and you have until Friday 29th November to get your entry in.

Here is a little mid month inspiration for you.

I have used a new fan die from Signature Dies that I purchased at the NEC.  For the fan I die cut the filigree fan shape out of vellum six times.  The die cuts were then mounted onto a double sided sticky sheet that had been stuck onto white card.  I cut round the blades and then added glitter to make the fan sparkle.  After putting the fan together using a brad I stuck some lace round the top of the fan.  A bow and little flower finished this element of my card.  The background is also vellum which I have embossed and then attached to purple card using brads.  A large die cut sentiment finished the card together with some punched butterflies.

Looks like my daughter's boyfriend will be taking this card as it is his Mum's birthday in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to pop over to Unstampabelles Challenges for more inspiration from the design team.  Thanks to Unstampabelles for letting me join you this month as guest designer.
