A few days ago I pulled out my Sue Wilson Festive collection dies thinking I would want to use them soon. Didn’t really have an idea in my head at the time, but after seeing the sketch challenge at Just Add Ink I thought they would work for the challenge. In addition The Sisterhood is asking for lots of layers and this meets that challenge too. One of the DT examples is what inspired mine.
I added a silvery layer to the card front and then added the die cut oval which already had some texture and I added a bit more by dry embossing a few snowflakes. I popped this up on top of the silver panel. I spent some time die cutting all the elements for the poinsettias using a scrap piece of white sparkle, gold foil, silver foil and some green foil. After layering all the pieces I played around until I got them in position and then glued them on top. Added the leaves and smaller flowers around the sentiment. Die cut the sentiment from Essentials in the same sparkle cs. In retrospect I should have die cut one in a dark cs (maybe the green foil) to add behind the sparkle, but even so I’m happy with the end result. Not a card for mailing but I can hand deliver to my neighbor who I know will like it.
