Today's card started off as a rusty orange prefolded square card that was not too bad of a weight. As soon as I spied the rich colour, I decided to make another glittered hill Nativity Card. I really was not happy with the one I created on this post here and decided to try to improve on that design..
I really liked the idea of musical note DP last time, and luckily had a snippet of an orangy coloured 12x12 DP left over from a scrapbook page. It was almost large enough to make the background mat for this card.. I managed to cover up the shortfall by placing one American Crafts Marquee Glittered Love diecut hill over the bottom of it. I cut a second hill out of kraft and promptly used it to shadow the glittered hill.
Stamped the image onto white Copic paper and used Stampin' Up chalks to create the sky and the sand dunes. Using the base card colour to inspire me, I used Twinkling H2O's to colour the village and the large palm tree . I used the stardust stickles on the stars but used a fine tipped steel to place the stickles dots. No blobby bits this time!
Matted the image and sentiment with kraft. added a blingy star and called it done. I like this one so much more than the one I created the other day.
This was such a hard photo to take. The glare off the glittered card was so strong...it seems to make the three wise men look so pale. IRL they show as black ink...not faded looking like they show here!
