Christmas Bethlehem - Starry Night
The vellum layer is a graphic of a wood cutting pattern which I altered by coloring it purple then adjusting the fill to provide variations in color from deep to lighter. I added my own Bethlehem star graphic and printed that on a quarter sheet of vellum. I then coated it with clear embossing powder and heated it. I found a greeting in my stash (Stampin Up Apothecary Framelit die cut with a SU stamped in purple) which was adhered to the vellum with 3D foam tape to the right side. I placed some double sided tape behind the greeting and the town graphic and adhered it to the starry background. I then added a tiny gold brad in the center of my star for a bit extra texture and some good holding together of the layers. I think this paper makes an effective starry night for my cards.
