Oh Deer! Christmas Card - Softening Patterned Paper

Creating soft, snowy backgrounds on Christmas cards is easy when you use vellum!

Inspiration: The amazing Clear & Sheer class from Online Card Classes. There are so many awesome ways to use vellum and acetate!

Technique: To create the soft background, I covered my Oh Deer! patterned paper with some vellum from the Uptown Fundamentals. It helps to mute the background so the Oh Deer! Complements really stand out.

I also heat embossed Perfectly Pine images onto the vellum, being careful not to leave the heat too long on the paper and heating both the front and back to prevent warping. 

Fun Tip: Use the embellishments to hide your adhesives. Simply glue wherever your embellishments will cover the vellum so you don't have to worry about the adhesive showing!
