The layout for my shaped card actually uses the design from CLP this month but this time I have done something completely different with it & rather than rotating it, actually flipped it - so basically the design is as if were viewed in a mirror. Don't I just complicate matters! LOL. All those layers have been cut using my Cameo with a card base cut from a creamy pearlescent cardstock & there is also a subtle sheen from the gold layer which too is pearlescent. For some of the white layers I not only embossed using two different dotty embossing folders but I also inked edges with a gold ink pad as I had done for the starry patterned design paper. Glue gel gives some layers that bit of dimension, including the sentiment (from Bird's Cards).

The little angel lighting the skies with her candle is LOTV's 'Holy Night' & was coloured using Promarkers. I gave her a golden glowing sky as if lit by her little candle (I have a big imagination, LOL). Yes, I know, theoretically, if viewed against such a background the image would have been silhouetted but then I wouldn't get to colour her now would I? LOL. Having coloured her in I then added the glistening element to the snowy ground with a swipe of Stickles. Not that it ever really shows in photos, of course!
|Inside the card
A slightly different version of the card shape for the back - the top is the same as the front but has straighter sides from the middle down. Onto this base I added a muted version of the layering for the inside of the card and this time the circular, scalloped sentiment is from Tracy Wray.
