We had our first snowfall yesterday and it inspired me to create this Christmas card.
I used the Quietfire Creations Christmas Waves a Magic Wand rubber stamp. Isn't that a beautiful verse for a Christmas card!
To create a dimensional scene, Els van de Burgt Studio Dotted Scallop Oval and Fitted Oval frame die sets were used to die cut an opening in pieces of 6x6 inch card stock. At the bottom of the Fitted Frame Oval, two snow banks were added. They were die cut using Karen Burniston's Outdoor Edges die. A Gold Line Peel Off Sticker was used to line the die cut edge of the Fitted Oval Frame.
A piece of vellum was die cut to fit behind the die cut Fitted Oval. Three Susan's CountryScapes Woods 4 trees were die cut and glued to the front of the vellum. This piece was attached to the back of the Fitted Oval frame. On the card base, three more CountryScapes Woods 4 trees were attached so they would appear further back in the forest. The vellum was to represent fog between the trees. The snow added to the trees was created by using DecoArt Snow-Tex paste.
Using Susan's CountryScapes Critters 6 die set, the deer was die cut and color sponged on. Pine boughs were die cut using Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Bough & Pinecone die set and a small red poinsettia made using Garden Notes Small Poinsettia die set.
The Oval layers were attached to the front of the card with dimensional tape between layers. The Quietfire verse was stamped, then fussy cut around the words and attached to the lower right corner. The deer was attached on the outside of the ovals using dimensional tape.
Gold Peel Off Line Stickers were added around the outside frame, then the Pine boughs and Poinsettia added.
