Yay for summer heading our way :-) - for all that I have managed quite a lot of time in the studio, and lots of cards completed. Oh, and some time in the garden too.
This card was one that fought me all the way - the colours changed several times, the texture on the stripe likewise, and the image I had to print twice because I made a major mistake in the colouring etc, etc..... enough said!! But I am pleased with the end result.
The image is from Priscillastyles Store and is the Christmas Tree set, which you can buy four images for $US 3.00
The red background (which has a very fine gold sparkle in the card) was textured using the Cuttlebug Branches embossing folder, the ovals cut using Nestabilites Classic Ovals die and Classic Scalloped Oval die.
A gold pen was run around the inside of the die, and the blue ink sponged around the trees before the die was removed.
The image (Christmas Tree Lane) was then painted with Twinkling H2O's, and had Kindy Glitz added for some sparkle. Kindy Glitz was also added to the scallops on the outer oval.
The lace was layered over some gold card - it is very old lace from my late Mother-in-Law's stash - then I added a couple of gold punched Christmas trees for a final detail.
