Ombre and Glitter

I made this card for the current Merry Monday 'Ombre and Glitter' challenge.  I'm also entering the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown 'Pick a Previous Theme' challenge (I have chosen O Little Town from May 2015), Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes as Long aS it's Christmas.


Card blank:  6" x 6" white hammer
Dies: Festive Scene (magazine freebie), Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large
Card: Marianne Design 'Snow Paper' white glitter, purple and silver Moondust, white hammer, white silk
Paper: Emma Ball blue ombre paper (magazine freebie)

I layered a square of white hammer card onto the purple Moondust and attached it to the card front. I attached a piece of ombre paper to white card (to make it the same thickness as the rest of the card I used for the image).  The Festive Scene was cut from purple Moondust card and the glitter card, the sky was cut from the ombre paper and the centre section with the windows was cut from silver Moondust.  I attached the complete purple image to a purple circle and then inlaid the rest of the pieces from the Festive Scene.  When complete I attached it to the centre of the card.

What a lovely card - looks very fiddly to get all those pieces fitted together - I'm sure I'd have lost a bit - but definitely worth the effort.

Wow - this is fabulous. Love the shimmer and sparkle and the great inlaid die technique. This is a beautiful Christmas scene. Thanks so much for playing along with our Pick a Previous theme at 52CCT this week! Deborah, DT.
