Cute Card Thursday - Gently does it!

The theme for Cute Card Thursday this week is
Gently does it!
To use vellum or parchment, if you don't have either one you can also use tissue paper or similar.
I had to go searching through an old drawer to find my vellum it has been ages since I last used any. 
I was thrilled to find this Christmas vellum and discovered by using distress inks on the back you can get the lettering to show up really well.  I love the effect on the torn edges too. 
Might be keeping it closer at hand now!

I used this super sweet digital image from Whimsy Stamps, designed by Crissy Armstrong, she is called Little Christmas Angel.
She is perfect to enter Crissy's challenge Sundays with Crissy which asks for red, green and gold!
ABC christmas challenge is Winter Wonderland
This week CCT is sponsored by Meljen's designs, now available to purchase from Whimsy Stamps.
Whimsy Stamps are celebrating their second anniversary this month and have lots of special offers to celebrate. This week you can get 25% off your rubber stamp purchase!


Happy Bonfire Night to all who celebrate.  We are having a party to celebrate here as of course it isn't a US holiday so we have to DIO! (Do it ourselves)
Whatever you are planning this weekend,  hope it is a fun one!
