|White Christmas from Bird's SVGs|
My love of paper might be matched by my love for glitter and shimmer in crafting. I'm still undecided if I went overboard on the glitter here, but I figure if you can't go all out glitzy for Christmas then you never can!
The base of the card is a cream pearl layered with brown glitter and a brushed gold for the lacy layer around the oval. The teal colors are from glitter, foil (as seen in the leaf veins) and plain cardstock. Here's a picture at a slight angle so you can see the shimmer from the foil on the teal leaves.
The berries and center of the poinsettia are cut from gold glitter and the poinsettia itself is the same brown glitter cardstock used in the background. I edged the brown poinsettia leaves in gold so the layers would stand out as they are dark in color and the shadows from the layering didn't show up as much as I wanted them to. This also ties in the gold berries and center piece.
One of my favorite things about this card is the dimension from layering. This isn't the best photo, but you get the idea. Layers of goodness here!
So be sure to check out all of the wonderful holiday projects at Bird's SVGs, many of which are completely free. I made this card from the Let It Snow collection last year. There are lots of lovely designs to choose from.
Happy weekend and thanks for stopping by!
