Or is that an oxymoron? :-)
I'm sure there are some people out there who enjoy Mondays. I'd like to say that I'm one of them; but no, not this gal! Talk to me on Friday :-)
I AM excited to show you my card today. I thought that, with my (lack of) photography skills, there would be no way that the glittery snowfall on this card would show through.
But I was wrong. I love how this photo turned out, although it doesn't show its full glittery effect.
I'm also happy that I finally got to use my new Tim Holtz Tree Line stamp set. What an amazing collection of images to create that perfect pine forest look. I stamped the trees in the back using Stampin' Up's Mellow Moss ink, then used Always Artichoke on the "closest" trees to give a sense of depth.
I used Early Espresso cardstock for the deer dies and adhered them with foam pop dots, while Cream cardstock was used for the base and snowy hills. The card is framed also in Early Espresso cardstock before adhering it onto a Cream card base.
I thought that the sentiment was very appropriate for this peaceful scene, stamped also in Early Espresso ink. I then tapped my Versa Mark pen around the page to drop medium onto the cream panel surrounding the trees, then heat set iridescent embossing powder on it.
Voila! Another Christmas card for my holiday stash.
No matter what day it is when you happen to visit my blog, enjoy and thanks for dropping in.
