I used a new (to me) technique on this card! I have a number of stencils in my stash and I finally got up the nerve to use one! This one is called LJ849 Bare Trees from Dreamweaver Stencils. For this technique I used embossing paste and glitter and this was my second attempt. I'm not sure I scraped off enough of the paste but I'm still learning! I saved my first attempt and may use it on a future card (or not!).
I also used one of my new birthday dies from Lawn Fawn called Stitched Hillside Borders. The sentiment is from Deedee's Country Christmas set and I used my own word bubble and then fussy-cut. The snowman and word bubble are popped up with foam tape. I added yellow glitter to the star on the snowman.
For my second card, I used the same snowman and sentiment but went with a different colour combo, and I coloured a tartan pattern on the scarf! Here I used another one of my new birthday dies, this one from Memory Box called Evergreen Landscape. The gorgeous green paper was part of a prize package I won last month from Cosmic Strawberry (thank you, Colette!). I added a number of sequins and a braided silver trim.
Here's a look at everything you get with Deedee's Country Christmas set. Images come pre-coloured and non-coloured so there are lots of options.
Sadly, this is my final DT post for Deedee's Digis as I have decided to step down. It's been a fun nine months and I'm going to miss the wonderful ladies on this DT! But you'll still see my creations for Deedee's monthly Digi of the Month progressive challenge as I wouldn't want to miss it! In fact, there's still plenty of time for you to play along this month. Why not head over to check out this month's cute set called Thinking Spot. Here's the card I made. Remember - if you participate now, you'll get next month's set for free!
