Are you getting ready for Christmas? I know.. there's so much running around to do right? It seems like there's always something on your "TO DO" list this time of year! I'm making a few more cards for last minute presents to hand out. I like to drop off bagels or donuts at the dentist, and veterinarian, and I can just tuck this in the bag of goodies.
If you know me.. then you know I love bold bright colors, something a little unexpected! I hope this one makes you smile!
I started with a pink background created with the Botanica Frame Die. I cut the die from pink card stock, and then layered it over a fuchsia panel. I trimmed the panel down about 1/4 on all sides to layer it on an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.5").
I cut the Wirework Ornaments from metallic gold foil paper, and used the Retro Ornaments as a background. I layered green, blue and yellow behind the intricate foil cut outs. To create a little more dimension, and add some shading I inlaid just a few pieces of darker cards stock on each. This didn't take long and I only added about 5 inlays on each ornament.
The ornaments are adhered directly to the base (no pop ups on this one) so it was easy to adhere the Merry Christmas Script sentiment over the ornaments. The finishing touch was a sprinkle of gold sequins to coordinate with the gold Wirework Ornaments.
I love the fun colors and retro glam this one has! What will you make today?
