Hello! It has been cold and snowy this week in the Cleveland, Ohio area. So I think this card is appropriate, especially, we also have a lot of deer around.
I enjoy doing cards like this; it has a little texture but not overwhelming. Most of all, you can create for several occasions such as birthday, Christmas, thinking of you, just because, and more. It does not have to be just for the holidays!
Don't you just love these trees? They are from the In the Woods Framelit dies and I used Whisper White and Soft Sea Foam card stock. (In the Woods framelits bundle with Winter Woods stamp set. I have linked both in my product list below).
Tip: these trees are great to use your Fine Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets
So, are you asking how I did my winter background?
Do you see that shimmer in the upper left-hand corner? I tried to get the light to reflect as much as possible while photographing the card so you could see the shine. It is made with Frost White Shimmer Paint and cellophane (or Saran Wrap as I call it). I took a small piece of Saran Wrap and loosely balled it up, poured a droplet of shimmer paint on my Silicone Craft sheet, and dabbed into the paint. I spread the shimmer paint around my silicone mat a little so when I dab onto my Whisper White card stock, it is nice and light instead of 'clumps' of paint.
Tip: you can dab the Shimmer Paint on your trees too!
My 'snowy ground' is Shimmery White Embossing Paste. Perfect application! I spread the Shimmer Paste across the bottom of the Whisper White card stock with my Palette knives. Then, bounced the Palette knife over it to give it tiny peaks and an uneven surface.
Lastly, my deer is from the Detailed Deer Thinlit dies and cut out using Early Espresso card stock. (Detailed Deer dies bundle with Dashing Deer stamp set. Again, I have linked both below as you save 10% with bundles).
Here is a list of supplies I used. Be sure to shop at stampwithlisabrown.stampinup.net or click on any of the images below to go straight to my store.
