Good Evening and Welcome. Another quick Christmas card post from me.
Sometimes when I'm working against the clock to make a card I find it very handy to follow a 'sketch challenge' - this one is at Cards n Scrapz here.
(The more eagle eyed may figure that the vertical side panels aren't in keeping with the design but I hope it's ok as it is one sheet of paper with a dappled brown pattern above cream).
Papers are by Inkido. I've machine stitched most edges. The central deer image was a free image online that I printed onto Lesley Riley's Transfer Artist Paper and then ironed onto some muslin. Stenciled some snowflakes via a Memory Box 'tiny snowflakes' stencil as well as adhering some punched paper ones too. Dotted around a few little 'pearls' using a Waco pearl pen. The sentiment has been diecut using the new Sizzix 'Holiday Words' thinlits. These dies are a little fiddly - best results achieved by cutting chosen paper backed with thick cardstock. Decorated with 'foliage' arrangements and knotted a bow through some dangling jingle bells. Dabbed with a little Snow-Tex and affixed some gems and pearls to complete.
Have all cards in the post now - hope you do too! Thanks so much for your visit.
