Filigree Chickadee Card ODBDSLC134
N= Navy, Nestabilities O= ornament E= Embossing L= Layers
I was so inspired by the navy blue colors of the cards made by Chris Olsen and Jan Keen as examples for this challenge that I had to make my own navy and white card for Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge ODBDSLC134 Noel word challenge.
For this card, I used the ODBD Chickadee Ornament set.
The ornament was stamped with Distress Faded Jeans, and embossed with clear embossing powder. At first, I just used the blue ink to shade around the ornament, but then decided to also go around the edge with a metallic silver Gelly Roll pen.
The snowflake around the ornament was made using two Spellbinders Pendants. The corners were made using a Spellbinders limited edition die designed by Becca Feeken, which came with her November Kit Club. All shading was done with the same ink.
The navy paper is mounted onto a mat of silver mirror card, which unfortunately looks black in every photo I took. This is mounted onto a white card. The corners were mounted flat onto the card, and the center snowflake was mounted dimensionally. The ornament was mounted dimensionally on top of the snowflake, and blue and white pearls were added.
