3rd and 4th Christmas Designs for 2011
Here are two versions of basically the same card design.
The metallic fold is a brushed gold Christmas gift wrap paper. This is the time of year to purchase all kinds of metallic papers to use all year round. They are an inexpensive resource, especially for layering. One roll of gift wrap goes a long long way when only used on cards.
You will note in this first card that the gift wrap kind of sank into the snow flake texture.
The letters are cut with Cuttlebug's Hippie Chick alphabet. Spellbinder's long rectangle nesting dies were used to cut the rectangles under the letters on both cards.
EK Success made the tree punch. Note the shadowing of gold behind the trees.
The card base is from a Sizzix random snowflake embossing folder.
I like the second card the best. Which one do you like?
