Turtle Dove Ornament Card ODBDSLC134
I took two photos of this card because I couldn't get a good photo straight on because of the reflection. The sideways one shows a little of the dimension and how the card looks without the reflection.
I hadn't used my ODBD Turtle Dove Ornament stamp yet, so I decided to use it to make a card for this week's Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge ODBDSLC134 Noel word challenge- Use the letters in Noel to create a card.
In My card I used N=Nestabilities (for the ornament and sentiment, O=Ornament and Oval, E=Embossing, L=Layers.
The die I used is a Lea'bilities Die. I cut and embossed it a bunch of times from gold mirror card and layered the die cuts, cutting some of them and using them to fill in until I had a kaleidoscope shape on Core'dinations Pearl CS. Then I cut around the kaleidoscope with scissors and mounted it dimensionally onto another piece of pearl card. Next, I added more pieces from the die cuts and mounted them onto the bottom piece pf pearl CS, pushing the ends under the top layer. That gave the design more dimension.
Next, I stamped the ornament and a sentiment onto pearl CS using VersaMark, embossed them in gold, and cut them out with some Spellbinders dies. I outlined the ornament with a gold pen, then mounted the sentiment dimensionally onto the ornament.
Next, the ornament was mounted dimensionally onto the kaleidoscope, and everything was mounted onto a gold mirror card mat, and the card itself.
I filled in some of the empty spaces by punching tiny gold mirror card flowers and accenting them and the other shapes with Liquid Pearls.
