Things are going to be a bit slow here while I build up a small stash of cards to post. I didn't have much crafting time in December and my schedule's still a bit wonky. There are a lot of card challenges I'd like to join though, so you may get more cards than I expect. Oh, and I didn't get to make many Christmas cards around Christmas, so expect some festive cards to come. I got a bunch of Christmas craft supplies as gifts. :D
Anyway, here's a card I made yesterday using a large snowflake die as a window. I got the idea from Kittie Kraft. I wasn't going to add the embossing to the blue paper at first, but the design looked odd disappearing under it, so I embossed it too. I love how this turned out. The sentiment was supposed to go along the bottom, but I guess it's going inside now.
I die cut the snowflake and used a rounder punch on the corners. I later came back and embossed the scrollwork to match the white cardstock.
For the white cardstock, I used the die to mark where the snowflake would cover and then stamped my deer and trees and sponged some ground for them (using 2 tones of blue dye ink). The deer were coloured in with a brown marker (because I couldn't locate my black one).
I used pop-dots to attach the blue cardstock and it was done.
I'm submitting it to Simon Says Stamp's Ice Inspiration challenge.
