Papertrey Create along with us: November 2016

Papertrey Ink invites us all to be inspired by something created during the release and to use that as inspiration:
I loved Laurie Willison's use of vellum on her tags and used that as my jumping off point.
I took some Papertrey Christmas patterned paper and used it as my backdrop.  I stamped Holiday Swoosh sentiments and heat embossed with a fine gold embossing powder.
 I added cream twine and used one vellum stamped overlay (Vellum polka dots) with one patterned piece.  The vellum looks just gorgeous on top of the patterned paper and mutes it a bit.  I really love this effect!  Here's a closer look at the layer below:
How is your tag making going?  Making a dent in the holiday card stash too?  I have a ways to go but will keep on ...

I was so excited that the new blog I found, Muse Christmas Visions, also had vellum as its theme and sponsored the 25 Days of Christmas Tags:
