Oh Deer, Christmas

IMG-20150926-WA0005 altered.jpg

As you can see, this Christmas card is a combination of gold, green, and red. It has many elements on the card, many layers, and quite a bit of embossing.

The base card is 8” x 8”, with a slightly smaller layer, which I embossed with Creative Expressions ‘Swirling Holly’ embossing folder. Another layer of a brushed gold card, and further layer of the same embossing folder. The central oval tag is from Creative Expressions/Sue Wilson ‘Lattice Snowflake’, using the oval itself, then a further oval in green of the main element from that die set. The snowflake used from another Creative Expressions/Sue Wilson set Festive snowflakes.

The added elements were the ‘x-cut’ poinsettia die, cut out several times, layered up, with the top layer having Glossy accents for the shine. The central dazzler added for a little glitter.The holly die cuts were again from Creative Expressions/Sue Wilson ‘Holly Sprays’, adding red glitter glue to the berries.

The ‘Deer family’ from Creative Expressions/Sue Wilson were cut out of red card, embossed to make their detail stand out more, and I also rubbed gold gilding wax over the top, to bring their colour in-line more with the rest of the card.

Over-all, quite a few layers, but I think the gold, green, and red are definitely a colourful Christmas.

I will be putting this card into the following challenge blogs:
