The challenge at Pals Paper Arts #269 had a wonderful sketch for this challenge. I turned the sketch to so I could do a standard A2 card. I stamped out this beautiful bird and then scanned it into my computer. I decreased the size of the image and then printed it out with my laser printer. I then ran the image through my laminating machine with gold foil to get the image to glitter with gold details. I could have embossed my image, but I really like the look of this technique, but you have to have a laser image for it to work. I then used some color pencils to add a touch of color and the bird looks amazing. Then I fussy cut it out to layer on my card. For the wreath I again first stamped it out, then scanned it into my computer to enlarge the image and then printed it out. I gave it more color with a green color pencil, and then added the red crystal dots and the red bow. For the sentiment I printed it from my computer and then did the foil technique on it as well using silver foil. After I had everything the way I wanted it, I cut the white card front down to size then rounded the corners and added it to my card base. I love the way this card came out. I tried to do a close up of the bird to show off the glitter look from the foil, but it didn't come out right. I'll try again to see if I can get a good picture and the will add it to this post.
