Good Morning everyone.
So today im sharing my first Christmas cards of the season. I saw this MFT deer die last Christmas but had already made my cards so had to have it for this years cards. Ive teamed it with my old favourite of the MB circle burst die.
I first took some pre embossed ivory card from payper box and scored it to make my cardblank (15x12cm). I then die cut the circle burst into the card front. I added my insert in the middle of the card from a beautiful gold pearl paper, so it shimmers and shines through the aperture on the front of the card. The cardstock is a good 300gsm so strong enough to stand up as a base card even with a big hole in the middle.
I stamped my greeting onto a off cut of the ivory card and mounted onto gold pearl and added to the bottom of the card. I then cut lots of deer from left over scraps of card coloured with brushos , inks, and added them to the front as if standing on my sentiment strip.
I then used stickles glitter glue to add a sparkly nose and dots on my sentiment strip to finish.
This photo shows how the aperture goes through to the insert, i only glued my insert in to the spine so that it has movement.
Different colours - been using up all those little bits of left over inked card.
This version uses gold mirror card that i coloured with alcohol inks
this one shows the mirror card better, using various colours of alcohol inks on it you get a lovely mottled effect. This set is a bonus for me as flat for posting, as most of you know i do love my dimension.
