Deer Ornament Greetings

 Hi there and thank you for stopping by my blog today! Today I am sharing a card that I made for the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. I had made a couple of Christmas tags for another challenge a while back, and used one of them to make into a card for the anything goes challenge.

The background for the tag was watercolor cardstock with Brushos, water and then I had added some Wink of Stella to give a little glimmer. This was die cut with the outline bauble die. The deer and snowflake part of the die was cut from black cardstock and this was glued down over the background. I cut the top of the bauble out of a scrap of silver cardstock.

I found a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder for my background.

 After embossing, I edged the piece with a green Copic and then swiped ink over the raised areas.

This was then layered to a piece of green cardstock, before being attached to the white card base. The sentiment was stamped with the same Olive Grove Memento ink, used for the background. 

I tucked the tag in between the sentiment and the little layer of green cardstock before attaching both to the card front with mounting tape.

That finished my card for today. I hope you will stop over to the Holly and Ivy Challenge and  join in the challenge!

Till next time,
