Christmas Carollers Card

I made this card for Lili of the Valley's Christmas in August challenge.

I stamped "Carol Singing" and coloured it in with alcohol markers, then fussy cut it out.  I die cut a frame out of cream cardstock and inked the edges in tan, then die cut some vellum snowflakes and a poinsettia.

I glued the vellum down with glossy accents, hoping it wouldn't show through but it did.  I've tried other means of gluing vellum with equally poor results, including a specialty vellum tape runner.  Ah well.  I used a regular tape runner on the frame and pop-dots on the image.

I think I should have added another backing paper as it feels too empty.  I'll have to try that on the next card.
