Joyeux Noel and a Happy Birthday

First and foremost, I am shouting out to my DH who is celebrating his birthday today--hope you have a good one Stephen :)

Now onto a winter card. Clear sheets always inspire me. I started inking white stazon and stamping snowflakes/sentiment from Joyeux Noel on the clear sheet. I waited for it to dry (left it overnight to be sure) and then on the flip side coloured the circles with distress crackle paint (to match the scratchy snowflakes) and stickles. I let those dry for a few hours. Then I made thin paper strips and tied them in a knot and adhered them to the buttons before placing them on the clear sheet.

Love the card, there is something about clear (vellum) paper that makes a card so elegant.
