Wishing You A Merry Christmas

söndag 7 augusti 2016

Hello there crafters!
Hope you have a great weekend so far. This is the card I made for this weeks challenge over at Muse:ChristmasVisions

For this card, I didn´t let the water colors dry, I let all the color blend together instead. Then I used some Memory Box "Forest Hills Landscape" and Poppy Stamps"Forest Deer", "Evergreen Landsscape" dies to create the rest of the card. If you look closely you will see that the back Forest Hills landscape is cut out of black Coredinations cardstock that I first crumpled up and then sanded, I like how it turded out. The reindeer had a white bottom `shadow´, because I placed a white die cut behind the black. The sentiment is from Scrapfabriken. I finished with adding some glitter Stickles on the reindeer horns and sunset / rise.
Hope you like today´s card. Have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit
