I try very hard to figure out how to simplify my designs yet keep some details that make them pop. This card has several layers which helps. Sure, I could just make lots of little holly leafs and say, "go to it!" but I don't think anyone want to create a card where you spend so much time fitting tiny pieces together.
Layer at least three circles and began experimenting. Once I got the affect I wanted I made a copy of the layers and then welded all the layers together. This creates an undistinguished shadow of the leaves. This made the base layer. The remaining layers are created by removing a leaf ring. Using a different color for each welding I can now lay this shadow on the first layer. Out pops the bottom layer leaves. Continue in the same fashion for each layer until all that is left are the berries.
Now there is no way to weld the last leaf layer or berries but with the last leaf layer is the silhouette of the berries which makes it easy to add either cutout berries or adhesive gems. I chose a combination of both. Pop a bow on the card and it's ready to be sent. Well, maybe wait for Christmas.
