Deer Family

Hello sparkle friends! Here's a card which brings you some cool winter air into your hot summer day.

I combined two new stamps Reindeer #722 digi version DIGI722J and Tree Scene #723 digi version DIGI723J to make a darling winter scene. Images are printed to the watercolor cardstock and colored with Distress ink pads. I smudged some ink to the plastic sheet and used it as a paint palette.

I added Dimensional Glue to the tree branches and covered it with Crystal Ice glitter. It gives very nice raised and sparkly effect - just like a real snow.
I'm trying hard to remember how I made these big snowflakes... It was month ago. Knowing myself it had to be like this: I adhered Super Adhesive Sheets to the card front size piece of white cardstock. Removed protective sheet and covered adhesive side with Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft. Then I cutted rectangle, smaller the front panel, out in the middle. I just can't waste all this nice stuff :) This rectangle was big enough to die cut two large snowflake with Joy Crafts Ice Crystals Border. 

Left over Twinkling Clouds covered frame was dry embossed with embossing folder. I inked the raised snowflake pattern with blue ink to make them pop out. You can't even tell that under the front panel is big ugly nothing :)

For each star I added dot of Sakura Glue Pen and sprinkled Crystal Ice glitter on top. I also added few pearls to the card.

There are more Christmas projects to come in this month but I hope you visit my blog on 1st August. Die-Versions and Sparkle N Sprinkle are having a huge joint blog hop for Cancer Awareness. Proceeds from the sale of the dies and the stamps revealed will go to help with cancer research! So get ready as I know you will be inspired by the projects created by these two very talented teams!
