Polkadoodles Winnie North Pole Gingerbread Basket

I love how this card turned out, despite it not planning to use any of the nesting dies I eventually went with or the distress ink. I think I must have just closed my eyes and it came together. I do love the softness though. It allows the rich colours of Winnie to really shine through.
There is a video on my YouTube Channel

Card Making Tutorial 

The image was printed, coloured and cut using a torn rectangle nesting die

Using an A5 pre folded card base the holly border was inked on using the distress ink and stencil

The sentiment was heat embossed

A piece of duck egg blue card was cut with a larger nesting die and these were arranged on the card base

Three drops of pale gold Nuvo Drops were added in the top left corner

Thank you for reading
