This fortnights challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and more is
Which I think is a perfect theme for all sorts of occasions!
I'm still trying to come up with a few designs for my Christmas cards that I will be posting out, so they need to be a bit flatter, less fussy and less weighty than my normal style.
And this is what I made.
I have die cut a circle from the top section of the card, then rubbed some black soot distress ink on the card blank behind. After sticking the die cut panel on top, I stamped a Christmas swirl and sentiment and embossed both with silver embossing powder, then added gems and a black organza bow. I used the die cut circle to make the sentiment panel inside the card, no waste here!
I quite like the effect of the reverse die cut, and will be making this design in a variety of colours this year.
Hope you like it
