Hi there 🙂 I’m full swing into the Christmas card making, and so far, the mojo hasn’t run out!!! Better keep at ‘er, as it seems to disappear every year!! I fell in love with this Christmas Deer from All Dressed Up Stamps as soon as I saw it. I colored it up with my Copics, then added a snowy effect in the background with the blender pen.
After cutting the image out with a circle die, I found a swirly snow die that framed it beautifully. I cut the snow out twice, and popped up the second of the bigger snowflakes on some foam dots to give some dimension. I used a winter tree folder to emboss the bottom part of the background, separating this area with the blank upper area with a scored line. After attaching the deer and frame, I die cut a sentiment and glued it to the top. A few of the off cut snowflakes from the frame swirl around it. For a finishing touch, some gemstones were added to the centres of the snowflakes, giving a bit of sparkle to the card.
I’d like to enter this in the following:
