This is my first project I made using Spellbindres Christmas Gems. I opted for a lavender monochrome palette with white heat embossed elements. If you take a look at the stamp image above, a few of the smaller elements actually mirror the larger cluster found in the gem. I took advantage of that and ‘decoupaged’ the images on top of the existing ones in the large gem. This card relies on dimension, so there is plenty of stacked foam behind each layer to give a lot of interest.
To continue the non-traditional card palette, I stamped the main gem image multiple times in a pattern onto some ivory colored cardstock. I made sure to use an alcohol marker friendly black ink so I could add grey accents to the poinsettias. I used a fine detail pen to add dots into the open spaces and finished with a sentiment tag and sequins.
I decided to go a little wild with this last example by making the main gem image an anaglyph. An anaglyph is the retro way 3D was made before polarized lenses. I don’t know if this will truly create a 3D image if you use those red and cyan glasses. Regardless I love the way this one turned out because it looks 3D without any added dimension–this card is one layer.
I really appreciate you stopping by. If you like what you’ve seen from me, please give me a follow over on my Instagram (@jaycee.gaspar) and/or subscribing to my blog and YouTube if you haven’t already.
