New from Digital Delights - Pyramage

Here is another Christmas card using the new Pyramage technique over at Digital Delights. It is a really cool technique to stack up layers of the same image.  It is a little different than paper tole that only takes selected sections of an image and repeats them.

I started by downloading and printing the pdf file onto glossy cardstock. Most scrapbook stores have this glossy cardstock as 8 1/2 x 11.  The image is pre-colored so no Copics here.

Then I cut out all the pieces using my best scissors.  I found that the Spellbinders classic square scalloped die worked for a background paper for the main image.  The Spellbinders classic circle work to cut out the sentiment and the scalloped die worked for the background paper.


I loaded all this onto a piece of A4 cardstock and a layer of Recollections Glitter paper for an extra sparkle.  I also added a bit of Flowersoft for a snowy effect and Stickles to make the stars sparkle.  Here is the finished card.....



Card Recipe:

CS and Papers: Card stock, Recollections Glitter Paper, Flowersoft, Stickles
Access. and Embellishments: Spellbinders Scalloped Square and Scalloped Circle,
Special Techniques: Pyramage

Christmas challenges abound these days so I will have no trouble entering the card into a number of challenges:
