Hello everybody, I hope you're all more prepared for Christmas than I am! :) This is the first Christmas card I've made this year, apart from samples. I made this one recently for a very poorly young woman who loves pink :)
I have used dies from Sheena Douglass' Scenic Winter PP collection and CC's Contemporary Christmas collection, an embossing folder from Crafters Companion Textures collection, Distress Inks - Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar and Dried Marigold. I also used Centura Pearl card, acetate and Brilliance Ink - Orchid.
I then die cut the Robin card front, Fir Trees and greeting from Centura Pearl card. I added some inks and glitter to the die cuts.
I took a strip of acetate and attached the Fir Trees.I then used strips of white card cut to size and scored to create a diorama. I took an 8" x 8" base card and embossed the front, then added Brilliance ink around the edges. I used red line double sided tape to attach the diorama to the card front, positioning the acetate strip behind the Robin to create a layered 3D scene.
I added the die cut sentiment at the top of the card.
As I said before, I created this card for someone who likes pink, but I really love this alternative colour scheme for a Christmas card :) I might have to do some more like this. Thank you for dropping by my blog today, I hope you'll visit again soon :)
