Happy Christmas Friday,
After last weeks copper colour scheme and the split it caused in my lovely Blog Commenters I thought I should post something a little more traditional this week. This card is made using my standard colour scheme of Red, White and Silver or Gold.
This week, therefore, I have posted 2 cards both using either Red, White and Gold or Silver.
This first card is an A4 sized sheet of red PMD cardstock folded in half with layers of red and gold topped with a sheet of Do'crafts Home for Christmas range.
The sentiment is a new one I received yesterday ( it usually takes a week for internet purchases to reach me here in Spain however this one took nearly a month!) and is from Indigoblu. I stamped this in Versamark and embossed the image in Mirror Gold embossing powder. I noticed that the image fits perfectly into Spellbinders Labels 2 so I cut it out and fussy cut a gold frame.
The ribbon Is Beresford's pencil stripe which is highlighted with die cut holly leaves from Joanna Sheens Signature Die.
This second card is made using the same idea of a sheet of Red PMD card folded in half however this time it is lengthways. The feature elements on this one are made using a die rather than stamp and is the new Spellbinders mix 'n match Ornaments die.
I started by cutting all of the elements including the separate centres ( this set allows you to cut solid ornaments or use one of the four centres that come with the set) so that the baubles are see through. I backed these with silver mirror card and highlighted the embossing on the die cuts with silver gilding wax. These have been placed, using acetate, floating in three windows cut with a Sizzix scalloped square die. Behind this I added a further sheet of Do'crafts Christmas paper and added more of the ribbon.
Both cards are made with virtually the same materials but give 2 totally different cards!
