Nordic Sampler Christmas Card

This card is made using a 6ins x 6ins hand cut red card blank
First Edition Nordic Christmas. Nordic Style Christmas CardThis is the final card I have made using a whole page from my Nordic Christmas pad
All I have done is trim the page down and then mat and layered it first on red card and then on silver mirri card to fit the 6” x 6” card blank.  I then added tiny red flat back gems and pearls in some of the spaces in the pattern and transluscent micro glitter to the tress.  All very simple, but my eyes are not what they were and working with such small gems did make me go a little crossed eyed at times.   The finishing touches were added by a little faux stitching using a white gel pen round the edges of the matting and card base. All done and dusted and with the minimal of fiddle fart!
