Susie & Vikki's Sketch Plan

Well, better late than never......... it's been a really busy few days and this is the first chance I have had to join in Susie & Vikki's Sketch Plan.

I started off with an 8" square card blank and covered the front with a piece of SU purple card and then layered gold glittered card and the purple until I had four layers.  I then took a piece of Hunkydory gold foiled card in a matching shade of purple, cut it to size and then put it through the Big Shot with a Nellies die which cut the ornate centre out.  I then cut the remaining card into four equal pieces and attached them to the front of the card.
The piece that was originally cut out was then placed in the centre of the card using foam pads.  I then stamped and gold embossed the Christmas tree image (Creative Expressions set) and used the smaller Nellies die to cut it out.  This was also placed on the card using foam pads.  I then used some Stickles adding to the dots around the main image and also to create "faux" gems on each corner of the card.  I coloured some gold peel offs using ProMarkers and put the phrase "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year" around the centre panel.  As the Hunkydory card is so ornate I thought less is more and left it as is.

Thanks for looking.
