Hello. After playing in my craft room I created this card. So very different to my recent posts – but the kind of many layers card I used to create back in the day. I had forgotten how much card stock this takes – and I must admit I ‘gutted’ a few of the layers. The dies used are from Sue Wilson – stitched squares, holly octagon – and are many years old:
I created a white card base to be slightly over the size of the first layer – and two layers of green, two layers of a brushed gold were matted – with one gold layer dry embossed – also a Sue Wilson embossing folder. The two smaller gold and green layers were die cut from the two larger layers – no waste, and you can’t see that I did that – don’t tell anyone!
Aligning the snowflakes on the gold layer took a minute or two – straight lines all over the place on that background.
The holly berry octagon was die cut in the green, and the other additional holly layers either green or gold – depending on how it all fit together.
I decided not to add a sentiment, but I’ll certainly add something to the inside instead of the front.
