Altenew | Adding Dimension to a Holiday Card

Hello everyone!

Today I want to share a holiday card of a pretty simple design which I elevated by adding some dimensional touches.

Season's Greetings Ornament Card. Card by Svitlana Shayevich

I started off my making the front panel of the card. I used the Basic Plaid 3D Embossing Folder with a light green cardstock.  Altenew embossing folders create such beautiful and prominent texture that they make half of a card already.  To highlight the plaid design after embossing with the folder I swiped an Embossing Ink Pad along the panel texture, added Pure White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

To make the ornament I used the Lovely Ornament Die Set. Die-cutting the leafy textured layer three times out of a Solar White Cardstock and stacking them on top of a white die-cut.

The leafy branches that were left after the ornament die-cutting I colored by blending the Shadow Creek Dye Ink using the Ink Blending Tool and then adding shading using the Mountain Pine Dye Ink and Detailed Blending Brushes.

I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base and then popped up the ornament on top. After that, I adhered the leafy branches onto the card as if they were tied to the ornament and added a hemp twine bow to it.

To make the sentiment I white embossed a stamp set from the Lovely Ornaments Stamp Set onto a red cardstock strip and popped it up onto the card.

This card was quite quick and easy to make and it features a pretty simple design. But because there are several dimensional the card looks much more interesting, I believe.

Have a wonderful day!
