Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - travel/transport
Sponsor & prize this week - Letraset / pack of Promarkers (wish I could enter!!!! LOL)
The fun image I am using for my DT card this week is from Elizabeth Dulemba. Santa is hurtling along on the Vespa but his poor reindeer is looking a tad concerned. No, it's not Rudolph - no glowing nose! LOL. He has been coloured with Promarkers of course, from the grey 'heavy with snow' skies to the tip of Santa's weather-beaten nose - and if any of those talented crafting children we have had entering our challenge of late are reading this, I would like to point out that I think that Santa here is probably going to one of his guest appearances at a store rather than trying to do his main delivery - so not to worry.
Basically, as you can see, other than the colour on the image it is just white on white, layering up pearlescent card. The base layer (on top of the main card) was run through an an embossing folder in several pieces as the folder was too small to perform the task in one piece. Any joins are hidden behind the layer above it thankfully, so having to piece it, whilst hardly ideal, didn't matter too much in the end. That next layer, the diamond shape, has a border created using the PATP Martha Stewart snowflake punches but the layer on top of that has a hand embossed border with another dotty layer added on top of that. This whole layer of mats is supported using sticky pads for added dimension & Santa's mat above that has also been added onto the card using foam pads. The large snowflakes were made using my Marianne Creatables die with centre pieces utilising the punched out flakes that were left from the MS border & corner punches.
