Vintage Christmas

Good evening all

I have had a nice relaxing day today.  My son is away for the week training to be an Officer for the Boys Brigade, so my house is peaceful, quiet and tidy.

Today I decided to have a little play with pop up cards.  This one I have made into a Christmas card using two different digital stamps from Sherri Baldy which I have coloured using ProMarkers.


I have used my Cameo Silhouette and a Silhouette cutting file to cut out the base card and pop out insert from white card stock.  The insert has been layered onto blue Centura Pearl card before sticking into the centre to give a small border around the outside.


I have then printed off three different patterned digital papers, cut into various sizes and layered them onto the same blue Centura Pearl.  These have been layered up to form the backgrounds on the inside and outside of the card.


The two digital stamps are mounted onto blue Centura Pearl card and glitter has been add to both images.


The snowflakes have been made using the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Lace die and the Arianna Blooms die.  For each snowflake, I have cut out two Arianna Lace from blue Centura Pearl and layered them.  Next, I have used the small stamen and cut out one from white card stock backed with a double sided adhesive sheet.  This has been covered in Glamour Dust.

In the centre of each snowflake, I have added a small silver spacer and pearl brad.  I have also added a silver chain with a snowflake charm to the inside snowflake.


To finish, I have placed a pearl swirl down the front of the card and three pearls in the corners.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
