Hello. I have a card to share inspired by the current colours at Color Throwdown:
I decided to make a Christmas card with those colours, and used a few Spellbinders die sets I have.
The background is embossed using an older embossing folder from Sizzix – not a Christmas design by any means, but I liked that it add some interest.
The central die is from Gina K designs and one of her Master Layouts, raised and adhered with foam.
The birds were put together using all the layers in each die set, but for the bird which is supposed to be a cardinal, I changed his/her tail feathers to the smaller ones from the other bird.
The floral elements and ferns are also from Spellbinders.
I played with the layout a little, stuck the elements down when I was happy with a mixture of 3D foam and glue, then added some sequins – I restrained myself to only adding three – and found that the sequins actually shine a little pink – so matches the colours perfectly.
I added the previously foiled sentiment for a total contrast so there is no mistake that this is a Christmas card……! Despit the colours…..!
