For my third and final project I am sharing a card I call...
Peace of the Season
This card is all about simple elegance and I was able to use one of my favorite Christmas colors schemes of blue, white, and silver. Nice and easy to do too! Here's how I did it:
- The base is an A2 sized in white. The bottom blue mat was cut at 5 3/8" (w) X 4 1/8" (h). The top white mat was cut at 5 1/8" (w) X 3 7/8" (h).
- The blue strip was originally cut at 5 1/2" (w) X 1" (h). Then I ran the strip through my Cuttlebug in the D'vine Swirls folder.
- Using a metallic silver ink pad, I ran it lightly over the embossed swirls to bring them out. I adhered the strip to the white mat, trimmed off the excess, then adhered the white mat to the blue.
- At this point, the card front is just about complete, so I when ahead and adhered it to my white base.
- The bird was cut from the Indie Art Cricut cartridge at 2 3/4". First I cut it out in white using the 'blackout' feature, then I cut the original image out in the blue. My wonderful lovely roll tipped Zig Pen helped me adhere the two layers together. (As a hint: just 'dotting' on the Zig glue works perfectly!)
- Once my bird was together, I used some mini pop-dots to adhere it to my card front. And then- taaa-daaa!! Peace of the Season is complete!
