Times three


This was going to be the post that I shared my Christmas card on, only I discovered I had not taken a photo of it - oops, thankfully I still have a 'spare' that I can take a photo of.

This card was made as a swap for a wee New Zealand group I am in, and the theme set for December was "three"  Very flexible, the idea being that we use groups of three on the card

The layered peony had three layers to the stamping, and was coated with Wink of Stella,
and three leaves.

The card had three techniques - embossing, die cutting,  and paint splattering
and three mediums - paint, card and cheesecloth

The sentiment had three words

There were six rhinestones (2x3) and there were three panels in the design
There were also three colours - red, gold and black.

This inside was finished with a simple stamp of the outline layer of the flower.

I am linking this to:

the flower was die cut

Neet said...

A lovely card but what a lot of thought you have put into it so that it embraced "three" in it. I think you deserve a special commendation for the way you have observed three within your card. I am so impressed.
Blessings, Neet xx
