Holy Night



The layout for my shaped card actually uses the design from CLP this month but this time I have done something completely different with it & rather than rotating it, actually flipped it - so basically the design is as if were viewed in a mirror. Don't I just complicate matters! LOL. All those layers have been cut using my Cameo with a card base cut from a creamy pearlescent cardstock & there is also a subtle sheen from the gold layer which too is pearlescent. For some of the white layers I not only embossed using two different dotty embossing folders but I also inked edges with a gold ink pad as I had done for the starry patterned design paper. Glue gel gives some layers that bit of dimension, including the sentiment (from Bird's Cards).

 A fairly complex set of layers with additional dimension from the use of glue gel.

The little angel lighting the skies with her candle is LOTV's 'Holy Night' & was coloured using Promarkers. I gave her a golden glowing sky as if lit by her little candle (I have a big imagination, LOL). Yes, I know, theoretically, if viewed against such a background the image would have been silhouetted but then I wouldn't get to colour her now would I? LOL.  Having coloured her in I then added the glistening element to the snowy ground with a swipe of Stickles. Not that it ever really shows in photos, of course!

Inside the card

A slightly different version of the card shape for the back  - the top is the same as the front but has straighter sides from the middle down. Onto this base I added a muted version of the layering for the inside of the card and this time the circular, scalloped sentiment is from Tracy Wray.
