A Very Merry Christmas
Here are two cards of a very similar design. The construction is fairly simple when it is broken down into steps.
I began with a plain white A2 card base. The next step is to create a texture or in some cases a patterned paper layer to cover the entire card front. I used the Sizzix embossing folder with white card stock. My preferred white card stock is Georgia Pacific that is about $5.50 at Walmart.
The gold and the red metallic are from gift wrap and high lighting foil glued to card stock. Spellbinders are the manufacturers of all the dies.
The 3-D sticker in the center of the card is from K & Company. These are mounted on gold squares. The squares have paper egg carton attached to the back to raise them every so slightly over the next red foil large scallops squares.
I love the red foil scallop "shadow" under the gold scallop. To me the whole combination of textures and papers is very pleasing.
