Unstampabelles Challenge #29 - Vellum DT Creation

This month at Unstampabelles we are playing with Vellum.  Be sure to visit Unstampabelles to see what the Design Team have created.  Christmas cracker, flowers, pergamano all are beautiful.

I found a wonderful tutorial by Kara which I used for these fun Christmas Stocking Gift Bags.  I think I will be making another one to add to these two and give to the ladies at the school tuckshop as a thank you this year from the P&C.

I started with white spotted vellum and machine stitched to pieces together in a stocking shape.  The holly leaves I hand cut from some green Bazzil card stock, the holly berries are peals colured with R29 Copic Pen.

This stocking topper I tried some red 'flock' that I have had in my stash for ages.  So in real life it has a lovely soft velvety feel.

This topper I embossed in a quilted pattern and then added leftover gold sticker to each join of the pattern. 

Come on over to Unstampabelles and enter so I can see your wonderful creation.

This months prize is from one of our Design Team members - Beth
