purple & gold

Hi there!

I have another Christmas card ready... here it is!




I love this beautiful nativity scene from Apex Cuttables.

Instead of trying to cut an intricate scene like this, I used the fill option, printed it out in black with a laser printer, and added gold foil with my laminator.

For the bottom , I did an offset of the image, cropped and cut it using purple card stock.

Great example of what can be achieved with a cutting machine - and such a stunning effect! This has loads of impact and I love the bold colour block of purple with the more delicate gold lines above. So grounded, yet also really elegant. Thanks for playing along with us at Less is More :)

This is fabulous Hannelie ! You convinced me day after day about the Cameo ! You make such wonders with it, but the machine is nothing without the genius who makes it work ! Yes, definitely, I love this colour combo ! Your card is another example of it ! Thanks for sharing.

I wonder if Santa would bring me a laminator??? Your card is so pretty, and the gold foil really adds elegance to your design.
