Dimension is the challenge today! I loves me some dimension! I added some layers for dimension, added a little dimension in shading around the tree, also masked the tree to add stamp the presents for a little dimension and embossed the fronts for even more.
This is a standard A2 card, but I scored it at 3.50 from the right and 2.0 from the left. Then I embossed both side sections. It seemed a little tricky at first, but I did the right side made a pencil mark on the left where the curvy line would be and lined that up with the embossing folder. I used a Grand Calibur and the mini cutting plate set and the big folder WILL fit in side ways to accomplish this.
The inside is stamped, colored w/ copics & tombows and layered. I used the border dies down the side. The images are new from Our Daily Bread designs.
Thanks so much for looking! I'll have it on my blog after dinner: The Write Stuff

Julie this is unbelievably beautiful. Your dry embossing is so elegant and your stamped image just adds to that elegance. Beautiful!!
