Being "Negative" at Christmas Time

Hello and Welcome!

To change things up, this card uses mostly negative space in its design. Check it out:

From The Cat's Pajamas snowflake Holiday Duo Tag to the Winnie & Walter Merry Cutaway (backed with Verve's Autumn Blessings leaf stamp) to the green circle background - all use negative space to add depth and interest. For some extra detail I added cheese cloth, stitching, sequins, tiny bells on gold thread, and ribbon. This card is based on a sketch at Your Next Stamp.

Here is a detail:
