Arbolito 2

A good thing about making your own cards is that you can always use the small pieces of paper left over from other projects to create your own unique background. On this card featured I made a small paper-pieced background using my tiny left-over papers, some glue and cardstock which then I die-cut using Nestabilities.
I also created my main background using slightly larger pieces of paper and card.
The interesting thing about this card is that looks like I used a gold peel-off greeting but actually the greeting was the "negative" of a silver peel-off (what's left when you remove it) that I colour with a permanent brown pen and applied it to gold mirror card.
I added a few gems to accent the baubles on the tree and foam pads for a 3D effect. Some of them were coloured with permanent pens too to match the traditional theme of this card.
Thanks for stopping by and have fantastic Monday!

Una buena razón para hacer tus propias tarjetas es que siempre podras usar esos pedacitos de papel que quedan de otros proyectos para crear un fondo único. En esta tarjeta podran apreciar el fondo que hice con los pedacitos de papel, goma y cartulina que luego corté usando Nestabilities. Tambien hice mi fondo principal usando pedazos de papel y cartulina ligeramente mas grandes.
Lo interesante de esta tarjeta es que use el "negativo" de los peel-offs (lo que queda cuando se remueve la pegatina) coloreandolo con un plumón permanente marrón que luego lo apliqué a una cartulina dorada brillante.
Al arbolito le puse unas gemas para acentuar las bolitas navideñas y tambien use foamis para crear el efecto 3D. Algunas gemas las coloreé con plumones permanentes para que vayan a juego con el tema tradicional de esta tarjeta.
Gracias por sus visitas y que tengan un lunes fantástico!
