In the effort to get ahead on my Christmas cards this week I have used Holly by Hope Jacare Doodles and made my first centre step card. I have made side step ones before but never a centre one. I am very pleased with how it turned out, made a rough template in paper and it worked so I am sure I will be using this design again J
The image has been coloured with Promarkers and boy was I glad I had the fine tips on these colours as the tips of the holly leaves, necklace and hair tendrils are all so intricate. I created a decoupage layer with the skirt and that was some fiddly cutting out but the results were worth it.
The papers are from a Craftwork Cards magazine freebie. I was careful to cut the patterned paper so that it was symmetrical, it seemed important as the whole focus is in the middle.
The holly on the sentiment strip is from a sheet of paper that is in a Forever Friends pad which I have added some red stickles berries to. Simple gems and a sentiment complete this card. I do love the intricacy of the image, there is so much detail in the designs from Hope Jacare and they are a pleasure to work with.
