We have a double twisted eisel card this week for our theme of Traditional Christmas. This has been created from a 8"x8" piece of card folded in half and the cut down the centre of the top half. Simply fold the two centre corners away from the  centre- a little like a shirt collar. The two  art pieces will fit onto these two folds. I have stamped all images in black ink and embossed with clear powder. Using the rich metallic Sakura pens I have watercoloured the images. As you will spot I have stamped part of the wreath to provide a flourish at the top and bottom of the message panel. Both pieces have been layered into dark green card & then gold card having used the inverted corner  punch first. The bottom half of the card has been covered with the Poinsettia paper and I have stamped a message border to act as the stop bar to the two eisel pieces. I have used the cute Holly brads on two layers of die cut circles to make some "mince pies". Add some frosting with Stickles and the red Elements to complete our Traditional Christmas theme.
