Snowflakes

DSCN1718_1_660_1

Here is my two-in-one Christmas card. I die-cut snowflakes and sentiment first and then added a layer of vellum beneath, so that they stay in place and have all the die-cut details. Some details were added above vellum.

Then I decided to make a bright backdrop for my die-cut silhouettes. I wanted to place just a piece of bright cardstock on the second panel, but finally went on with an idea of masking bauble shapes and coloring them with ink also as silhouettes, without adding volume or details.

I also colored the sentiment and to bring everything together I added a garland of stars.

So the inside part looks almost like an independent greeting card.

My song title inspiration here is – ‘Let it Snow’ by Dean Martin

    What a cleverly constructed card. I love the way the brightness from the second panel shows through the vellum. Also love your hand drawn hangers for the ornaments. Thanks so much for linking up and playing with us at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge!
