Card - Digital Christmas 2013 - O Little Town of Bethlehem
I created this card in order to send Christmas greetings to folks I connect with by email or on-line.
I created this art for a project that fell through so I decided to use it for my digital Christmas card this year. I started with a 5x7 canvas panel. I embossed white card stock with the Sizzix Swiss Dots folder then ripped it into strips and glued it to the panel horizontally to create illusion of clouds. I used the buildings I designed a long time ago, printed them on blue card stock and fuzzy cut them. I cut out the windows and put yellow paper behind. These were then glued to the panel. I painted the whole thing with several shades of blue/purple ink. You will see that the card stock absorbed ink differently than the canvas which created different values of color. I glued my Bethlehem down over the strips. I added silver star which I hand cut and the wavy band was cut with the Creative Memories Wavy cutter and glued down as well. I dry brushed some silver on the roofs of the buildings and a little around the art piece.
