Jenny Gropp - You are here!
OK... I started with the idea of clean and simple in my head and got a little lost with the layers. I like the layers, what can I say!! Leaving the Holly Cake white made for a fast color job.
I wanted to keep the Holly Cake white. To make that white stand out I added the blue in the background to help make it pop!
Here are the Copics I used to color the rest of the image. I chose my colors based on the printed word paper in the background.
I added foam tape in between the layers for dimension. I used a Clear Wink of Stella on the white area of the cake.... It just doesn't show in the pictures. It looks sugary and sparkly in person! On the bottom edge I used just the edge of a Christmas Tag Die, cutting it in white as well and piecing the white letters back in. I also added red Swarovski crystals over the red berries for a little bling!
Here's the inside with a simple With Love sentiment. I used up the remaining paper to complete the inside. Finished card is an A2.
