Mixed Media Christmas Card

Hi Everyone, today I am sharing some Festive Inspiration using the new Royal Scandinavian Doily from Cheery Lynn Designs for my DT card.

I die cut out my Doily and Corners and heat embossed with a Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder, layering on to my patterned cardstock.

Next I started to cut out my Candlelight die 3 times, so I had plenty parts to build up my layers for texture. My foliage was shaded with Copics, shaped on my embossing mat and layered up a few times. My Poinsettia was also shaded with Copics, layering in my shaped petals and adding a little Gold Flower Soft to the centre.

My candles were layered twice. On the top section I brushed on some Beeswax which I had melted in my Meltpot. I then added some drips of wax and once set highlighted with Gilding Wax. My flames were shaded with Copics and some Glossy Accents added onto them.

I do hope you have enjoyed my techniques and feel inspired to try them out on your die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by today.
