I am taking a quick break from working on my Cat Hop posts to share this Christmas card with you. I am entering it in Jo's Christmas Kickstart - Woodland Creatures Challenge. There's still almost a week to go, so you have time to make a card, too!!
I always love it when cardmakers use purple for their winter skies, but I usually forget to try it. I had this leftover lavender-toned Easter egg dye background, though, so I stenciled falling snow and added a couple big snowflakes to make the backdrop for my gessoed deer chippy. Pink for the snowy ground seemed right for this scene, too.
You might notice that almost every card I make uses Winnie & Walter dies with faux stitched borders. This card also makes use of a Pink & Main stitched wave die. I love faux stitching because it is so easy and gives subtle texture while still offering good definition.....and, besides, I don't trust myself to do actual machine or hand-stitching on my cards!!! lol... Faux stitching is the winner for me. :)
Supplies used include:
Deer, big snowflakes, and sentiment sticker all from a goodie bag Gloria Stengel sent me a long time ago. 😍
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Pink & Main Scallop Waves die set
Leftover Easter egg dye background on watercolor paper
Simon Says Stamp - Falling Snow stencil
Dreamweaver- Embossing Paste
Zva adhesive rhinestone swirl (partial)
Hope you liked my card today. Thank you so much for stopping by!

It took me 2 hours (arrrgh..) of searching and fiddling to find a suitable widget that would work and then to get the confounded thing configured to my liking for my sidebar....SO ENJOY IT!!!! Ha!
