I have a card to share for One Layer Wednesday where Susan is the host this week. She’s set a ‘Christmas Sparklers’ theme … use glitter or shimmer on a one layer Christmas/holiday card. Nothing like being prepared well in advance of the event!
I have four Christmas themed stamps (one image, two sentiments, one freebie), none of which I could make work here … so I went on the hunt for something suitably festive … or something that could be turned into something suitably festive. I found these circles on the Avery Elle Blog free digital stamps page … seemed they could very well be Christmas baubles … at least that’s how my eyes saw them.
The stripes are coloured with Promarkers and have holographic glitter layered over the top. I made the sentiment using an old peel-off negative and a black fine liner, and topped it with glitter, courtesy of my trusty glue pen. A couple of miniscule gems (coloured to match the baubles) act as the trema over the ‘e’ (French spelling of course!).
The last touch was to round the bottom corners … having them rounded seemed to balance the card better … maybe because it reflects the rounded baubles? Looking at it now, though I’m still not certain that the balance is right … could the baubles be lower … should the bottom 5cm have been sliced off to make it into a square card … is it just me? P’raps you could let me know!
Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a delight! Anita 🙂
