Happy Friday, peeps, and Happy St Pat's! I hope you have something fun planned to do this weekend! I haven't made a Christmas card for a while, and the photo challenge at Christmas Card Challenges inspired me to get out my gold and silver foil cardstock! The photo is hard to see, but there are prancing deer and Christmas trees featured on some gift wrap.
My first attempt had been a shaker card for Tuesday's post...epic fail. So I opted for something a little bit simpler, still not quite as I expected it to turn out, but at least it's another for my stash. So here we go:
I started with a base of thick white cardstock on which to adhere my silver foil Evergreen Hillside diecut; I cut out a piece of Smoky Slate and printed vellum as well to layer and fit into the tree line on the top. I then diecut two deer from gold foil, as well as a punched star, to adhere with dimensionals. Pretty simple, all in all! I love how pretty these diecuts are!
But I do have an issue with adhering vellum; it bugs me that I can see my little bigs of glue! What do you use to adhere vellum? I am sure there must be some good products out there on the market! And I am still on the fence about adding a sentiment somewhere on the front. For now, I'l leaving it as it is! I did add a sentiment from Papertrey, stamped in Gold Encore, on the inside:
And here are a few snow photos...even though technically we didn't get that much, when it's all plowed up in a pile, it seems like a lot! Here is my little "queen of the hill".....her scarf is blowin' in the wind, I think it must have been about 40 mph! You can see a portion of my little garden flag in the lower right hand corner....it is straight out!
Enjoy your day!
