Hello friends! Welcome back to my blog. It's that time of the month where the Squirrel Squad and I gather those unloved supplies and start using them while incorporating a technique or a certain theme. This month we're focusing our attention on using some vellum and making projects for the holidays. Here are my cards:

SQUIRRELS GONE NUTZ -- HOLIDAYS AND VELLUM --NOVEMBER 22, 2021
I dry embossed the Bristol panels with some festive snowflake 3D embossing folders, and ink blended them with oxide inks and blender brushes. On the top card, I used Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Prize Ribbon. The second card has Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, and Picked Raspberry. After the ink blending, I sanded the panels to expose the white on the raised areas. As a final touch, I spritzed them with shimmer spray. I found this sentiment in my stash and thought it worked perfectly with my card panels so, I used "traditional" vellum on the top card, and colored vellum on the bottom card. I used WOW metallic silver sparkle embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment. I trimmed the panels down a bit with my trimmer, wrapped the vellum pieces around them, and taped them to the back. Foam tape was added to the back of the panels, and then they were adhered to the card bases.
