The 12 Days of Christmas Cards-Day Two
Sometimes the simplest of designs are the truly stunning ones. I saw a card on Splitcoast a few weeks ago (Rox71 is the artist) that was so serene and gorgeous, I just had to try my hand at it. I was fascinated with the little upraised houses on the card and couldn't believe it was a Cuttlebug embossing folder!! I quickly snatched one up on the 'bay and this is my take on her beautiful card!
I used Prismacolor pencils and baby oil to color the houses and added Martha Stewart coarse glitter to the rooftops and ground. The snowflake is a Martha punch and also coated in glitter. Her coarse glitter is fabulous! I wasn't sure how much I would use it(and of course, bought the giant container of it) but now I'm glad I bought it. The sentiment is PTI's Holiday Wishes set stamped on the Labels One Nesties and I am SO happy with these stamps! There's 15 Christmas sentiments and they look fantastic stamped and embossed on the insides of the cards too. I also used the Martha Stewart snowflake border punch on the bottom and added a little holiday ribbon from Michaels.
It's very sparkly IRL and just hard to capture with my limited photog skills :)
