Online Card Class Day 1 Round 2

Another project from the class was to use the negative and positive of the same image on a card.  The class card was by Joy Taylor.  Here's my take on that design.  This is actually the first stage of this card.  I wasn't quite sure about it so I kept adding.  You'll see what I mean :)

This was a very simple design, well, mine was anyway..lol.  I cut the Noel using the Artiste Cricut cartridge from Ruby cardstock.  I used the negative image of that cut and layered over the candy striped B&T from the Sparkle and Shine paper pack.  Using our scalloped edge punch, I scalloped both edges of the paper.   I used Juniper ink and the A Holiday stamp set to stamp the leaves and then just cut them out.  The berries are from the pink Glitter Gems collection.  

The card looked a little plain to me.  The inspiration card from class used a wonderful falling star die to cut little stars scattered on the paper.  I loved the effect, but I don't have that die...yet :)  But I felt it needed something.  Soooo....I used my Glitz Glitter Gel in Stardust and randomly scattered sparkles on the top.   I was going for falling snow.  I'm not sure I got it, but I tried! lol. 

My daughter preferred the second one.  She's thirteen, it glitters, what more is there to say.   It is prettier in person.  Which one do you like better, plain or sparkled?   I think I will try this random sparkling again to see if I can perfect a method, but for now, this will do. 

That's it for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by!
