Midnight Madness Challenge blog has another lovely sketch to test us this week and here is my solution to it.
I made a series of these cards this week and wanted to take this one a little further and the challenge was just what I needed to inspire me.
This is the sketch
And here are some detail photos to let you see up close what I've added to the Sponged and Masked image created from the Stampin' Up! stamp set: LOVELY AS A TREE and the small reindeer from a retired stamp set.
There is a small glossy gold border around the dry embossed "frame", so I added gold ribbon and flowers, and a glittery gold tree.
Decoration in the top corner is 3 simple gold stars. I didn't want to overload this card with embellishments as it would detract from the rather involved images used. The colour for this card is CHERRY COBBLER - a beautifully rich colour just right for Christmas.
Hope you enjoy the card,
