Today's nutcracker card uses more of the wonderful shaving cream paper.
The image is Tattered Lace Nutcracker die cut from a mirrored silver of unknown origin. The image is layered on more mirrored silver and Recollections White which was smooshed with blue Stampin' Up and Ranger re-inkers and shaving cream. The sentiment is Bonnidee Layering Trees stamped in Versafine Onyx Black. The embellishment is also Recollections.
This is not the result I thought I'd get when I was putting the card together. I don't hate this card but I'd hoped the nutcracker would pop more as would the embellishment and sentiment. I purposefully kept the elements and layers simple but what ended up happening is that the background paper has overwhelmed everything else. I think I would be more pleased with the results if I'd added either blue or white over the printed layer with a wide reveal. Live and learn! I'm not unhappy with this card, I just wish is was better. Of course, this isn't the best photo, which doesn't help either.
I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
