Creative Belli Challenge #125

Hello everyone and welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!!! The challenge this two weeks is to use acetate or vellum on your creation. You can use acetate to stamp on, create shapes, snowflakes, or create a window effect or box; vellum can be used for a sentiment, scallop, or background...what ever your little heart desires!! Remember, the spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!
My Christmas card features stamps from The Little Paper Shop...the sentiment is from the Global set and the bird is from the Christmas Wishes set. Retired Stampin Up! snowflake vellum was sewn onto a piece of red dp and the scallop was made from a piece of vellum that was embossed with the Dotted Swiss embossing folder. The Candy Dots, seam binding, button, twine, and felt snowflake finish it off.

This is for a few other challenges:
1. Ribbon Carousel Challenge - use 2 or more items that come on a spool (I used seam binding ribbon and twine)
2. My Craft Spot - sewing, stitching
3. Card Cupids Blog - stitching
4. Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - build up the layers
5. Hooked on Crafts - winged things

Be sure to stop by the Creative Belli Blog to see what the other Belli Girls made for you today....you will find lots of awesome inspiration!!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast, PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC125 in the keywords section.


Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!!!
