Nordic Christmas

Nordic Christmas3

Have you been enjoying the new Christmas release?  I am so inspired by all the wonderful Nordic designs that Poppystamps recently released.  These beautiful designs allow me to create beautiful cards while honoring my Scandinavian roots.  

Let me show you how this card was created:

Nordic Christmas8

I started with the Vintage Tray Embossing Folder & die, cutting it out of white card stock three times.  I glued the three frames together and used only one set of the embossed pieces that popped out of the frame after die cutting it.  I distressed the edges of each little embossed panel using Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink.  I then mounted the frame and negative pieces to the front of an A2 size card base.

I then die cut the Nordic Bird, Nordic Flourishes, Nordic Whimsy Trees, Nordic Tree Toppers and Flock of Birds out o white card stock.

Using the Lavish Merry Christmas Die, I cut the framed layer out of vellum and the detailed word die out of gold card stock and glued them together.

I adhered each of the die cuts to the panels and finished a few of them off with a Bright Fairy Jewels.

Hi Birgit, A gorgeous and innovative card, I love all the little compartments each with their own little story. The colouring is beautiful.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
