Wonder & Peace layout with Christmas Jewel

Hello Kaisercraft fans,

Emmy here today with my first post for this month. I can’t believe the summer is almost gone and soon it will be winter! Luckily, to help my get into the winter / Christmas spirit, this month I’ve got the pleasure to work with one of the most enchanting Kaisercraft collections – Christmas Jewel (available at Merly Impressions’ online store).MI-wonder-piece-web-530

For my background I layered the Ornate Garland foil paper on top of a Kaisercard Coconut Weave Cardstock. Before adhering the two layers together, I inked the edges of the white cardstock with Mini Ink Pad – Orchid. Then I cut of 0.5 cm from each side of the foil paper, distressed its edges with Paper Distresser and adhered it on top of the cardstock using Kaisercraft 12mm Double-sided Tape. I tore stripes from a pattern paper from the Paper Pad and tucked them in between the two layers to give more distressed look to my background.MI-wonder-piece-det (1)

Once everything was in place, I added a dimensional layer using silver glitter paste and the snowy square from the Christmas Quarters 12×12 Stencil. Then I sprinkled a bit of KaiserMist Spray Ink – White.MI-wonder-piece-det (2)

I used two slightly larger panels from Kaisercard Coconut Weave Cardstock to mat my picture. before adhering the second one with Mounting Foam Tape, I inked its edges with Mini Ink Pad – Orchid. Then I added the rest of the layers using papers and die cuts from the Paper Pad and Paper Doilies.MI-wonder-piece-det (3) MI-wonder-piece-det (4)

To decorate my picture I die cut snowflakes using Coconut Cardstock and Kaisercraft Decorative Die Snowflake and adhered them together with different embellishments from the Collectables pack.MI-wonder-piece-det (7) MI-wonder-piece-det (8)

I added Paper Blooms – Amethyst and Metallic Hemp Cord Black as well.MI-wonder-piece-det (6) MI-wonder-piece-det (5)

For my title I used a sticker from the Sticker Sheet matching the collection.MI-wonder-piece-det (9)
