Time, again, for another card for the 12 Days of Christmas at Catch The Bug. This is a new card style for me and my first attempt at a telescoping card. I'm loving this card style! So much fun to make and not too bad for my first try.
This telescoping card is for Day 10 of the 12 Days of Christmas at Catch The Bug.
Above, you can see the pic of the card before its opened. I apologize for the quality of the photo. I used gold metallic cardstock on a couple of the circles and the glare caused it to turn out green in the photo. I even tried different camera settings and tried taking the pics from a top down angled view and it didn't help much.
I made this card for my friend, for the holidays. He's a martini kinda guy so he'll love it. I used a non traditional color combo of black and gold.
I hope the blogs who have the red and gold challenges won't count me out of the running on this one, due to picture quality. I swear its really gold metallic cardstock!
Anyway, here is a pic of the card once its opened:
I used metallic red and gold cardstocks to make my 3 circles, then used black papers with silver star prints and silver swirls for the next layers. The center layer on each are the images and the sentiment. I used the Cutting system from Creative Memories, to cut all the circles. The circle layers are held together with black and white polka dot brads. The images are from Bugaboo Stamps and are colored with Promarkers. I added glitter and sparkle to the images with a clearstar gelly roll pen. I tried to color the stella martini glass image to reflect that Stella is sitting inside the martini glass.
