In traditional colors

Hi, Janja here!

Today I share with you a holiday card in traditional Christmas colors. The card layout is simple and will not take us a lot of time.

For the card we need:
- white card base: 4.5 x 5.8" (11,5 x 14,7 cm), folded
- gold mirror paper: 4.25 x 5.5" (10,8 x 14 cm)
- patterned paper: 4 x 5.25" (10,2 x 13,4 cm)
- white cardstock
- red paint with blow-up effect
- Distress ink: Festive Berries, Moved Lawn

We prepare cutouts with the dies: elegant deer & wreath, Merry Christmas Santa, tea time doily, holiday wreath and the largest die from circle set.

Shadow both wreaths with Distress inks. For a super blow-up effect apply an inflatable red paint with handy pen on holly berries.

Fasten red patterned paper on to gold mirror paper and mat them together on to white card front. Add all the cut-outs as shown in the photo.

This luxurious gold paper has a highly reflective surface of the mirror. When taking photo, I had quite a few problems. Wherever I set up, I saw my reflection.

Thank you for watching.
