I made this card for the latest challenge at Ooh La La Creations which is "Scenic". There are some beautiful scenes on the lovely Joanna Sheen triple CD "Victorian Christmas Cards" and I printed off a set of toppers, background paper and insert.
Unfortunately a complete set like this doesn't give much scope for creativity. I'd probably have been better off using the single large image, but having used all that printer ink, I was determined to use all the papers! So I concentrated on making the card as luxurious as possible - all the layering gives a card with a satisfyingly "heavy" feel to it, and I plan to set this card aside to send to one of our rather "posh" friends who is more appreciative of luxury than creativity!
I love the way the scene is subtly referenced on the insert paper!
A tip - if you usually try to save on metallic card by removing the centre of mats, don't do it on these insert pieces as when you write in the card, your pen will go straight through the paper!
