A Work in Progress

Hi there,

Just sharing another one of the Christmas cards I made today.  This was a work in progress, I wasn’t happy with the first version of it, made some additions, still wasn’t happy, more changes, more changes, until I got it to its current (and final) state.

Cardstock:  Grey cardstock
Spellbinders: 2012 Heirloom Ornaments dies
Other: Sentiment sticker, Art Stamps Australia Glitter Stickers, Gelly Roll Pens

I cut an A5 cardbase,and cut an additional piece the same size as the front.   Using the number 4 die from 2012 Heirloom Ornaments dies, I cut out an opening on the front of the card,  and adhered the additional piece of card inside the card, to make it into a threefold card (Cardstock is not long enough to make an A5 threefold card, so I had to improvise).

I used the number 3, 2 and 1 dies to cut out ornaments from the Glitter Stickers, layered them, and adhered within the cutout front of the card.  I cut additional ornaments using the number 1 die, and added these in each corner.

Here is the card at this point.

Not happy with this, I left it for a while, and came back later to add to it.  I coloured a silver Christmas sentiment sticker with a blue stardust Gelly Roll pen.  Here is the card at this point.

Getting better, but still not happy with it, I again left it for a while.  When I came back to it, I used a silver stardust Gelly Roll pen to colour in the top of the ornament, and to trace around the outline.  Here is the card.

This made a difference, but I still wasn’t happy with it, so again I left it for a while.  This time when I came back to it, I used the black stardust pen, and traced over the outline edge, Here is the card at this stage.

Almost there.  This time, I traced around the edges of the corner ornaments.. Here is the finished card.
