We have a guest designer over at Christmasvisions this week who has created a one-layer wonder! I have taken several elements to focus on 1) the ornate ornament, 2) distressed background, 3) simple black sentiment. I could have been truly creative and decorated a plain orb…but it had been a while since I had pulled this Magenta beauty out of the drawer. The stamp is large so I could only fit one ornament on an A2 card (rather than the 2 the design suggests). Also I actually chose gold ink rather than red or green, given my ornament’s design.
First, I distressed the upper right corner of a white A2 card panel (peacock feathers). Then I embossed my ornament on the panel, and on Stardream gold card stock. I cut the orb from the Stardream and carefully adhered in the correct location on the distressed panel. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine in bottom left corner to balance. Finally I adhered the finished card panel to a dark blue Stardream card base. I would have loved sequins or splatter (closer to my design taste) but instead stayed true to the design.
