Using Ovals in Black, White and Silver

Anything Goes Embossing With a Twist of THANKS

Having seen a post on Pinterest featuring a card similar to this one, I was intrigued to see if I could make my own version. The challenge was in figuring out how it was done, because the post is not attributed to anything in particular so no instructions or guidance. I thought about it for a while and decided to try die cutting and layering. I used the die negative sections and layered from there. I tried paper piecing but couldn’t get the look I wanted that way. Anyway the card base is black and is a funny size because I did the layers first and then cut the card to fit the finished part. The final oval is one of the die cuts that I stamped in black and added a bit sparkle to using Sakura glitter pens. The embossed layer uses a new SSS snowflake folder that I really like. Before I embossed it I had die cut the center and I added this layer before adding the image oval. The poinsettias are stamped and heat embossed in silver then die cut and glued together with a sparkly silver center to each. I also curved some of the leaves a bit for a more realistic look. The leaves were stamped and fussy cut as there is no die for them in the set, which is a last year’s StampinUp Christmas set. I’m really pleased with how this turned out and it am entering it into the CYHTP challenge. I hope you’ve all recovered from your Thanksgiving festivities and that you are enjoying a nice weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
