Sweetstamp Challenge 74 Christmas Parchment

Today at Sweetstamp we are celebrating Parchment Christmas. I love this technique. You don't have to use a
Sweetstamp image but if you do you will have 2 chances at winning a 20.00 shopping spree.  For this card I
stamped the image with White dye ink on Vellum  then added my White embossing powder. then heated it with my heat embossing tool. The image is Bells with Bow . I then used my etching tools, my embossing mat,
grid and perforating mat.  The die is Cheery Lynn. I added some pearls to the die.  If you are interested in  trying this fabulous craft Sweetstamp has a starter kit on sale. You can also buy grids and make your own borders for your cards. So come and join the fun at Sweetstamp and have a wonderful day!!!!!!
