Another pair of cards using the red Christmas masterboard. This time I added an extra layer of stamping on the background and then decorated it with die cuts.
These were both assembled from things already in my stash. I had die-cut some sentiments and snowflakes at the same time I made the masterboards. I just hadn’t planned on leaving it quite so long before putting them all together.
I stamped the music background in black on one and grey on the other.
As neither the white nor black sentiments seemed to work right on such a busy background, I coloured the white ones silver and offset layered them over the black ones — the effect is still quite subtle (especially in low light which is all we seem to have here at the moment) but I’m happy with it.
I gave the snowflakes a light coat of Wink of Stella and arranged them over the cards. The final touch was the addition of white faux stitching around the edges.

They look great, really like the offsetting of the sentiments.:)
These look great. There’s a slight feel of tartan somehow which I love
Cute cards! I love the snowflakes!
