Hello all my friends in blog-land! I hope you have all been doing well since my last post! Here in PA, we have had some nasty, rainy weather lately, but today it looks like we may have a bit of sunshine! Maybe this evening we can get the tulips we have in a box on our front porch actually planted in the garden with last year's tulips...lol.
So, onto this card. I made this card for this week's challenge over at the Jingle Belles blog: Create a Christmas card to die (cut) for! This week, the Jingle Belles are working with Betty Bee's Buzz, so go check them out too!
Since I seem to have ALOT of Christmas stamps, I wanted to use one that had not yet had the joy of being inked. This deer comes from the Holiday Silhouettes set from Inkadinkado. I used Nesties to diecut him and to make the matting. The green strips were embossed with a Sizzix folder that I don't remember the name of. The snowflake is also diecut from Nesties; I combined pieces from the 2 sets I have to make this one. The ink is a metallic copper that I picked up at AC Moore some time ago...I like the shine of it, but I think it stamps a bit "muddy" looking. I also used this ink to highlight the edges of the snowflake. The little green gems that inspired me to add the green cardstock came from the dollar bin at Mike's. Well, that's all I can say about this card...I will be back later on to post my brother's birthday card. Posting.... :)
