Deer Ornament

Hello, everybody!  I'm back again today to share another holiday card!  As mentioned, I'm getting a headstart on next year's cards!

I love this gorgeous ornament die-cut, but I do not know the name or manufacturer as I received it from a friend (thank you!).  The background was made with various Distress Oxides on watercolour paper using the ink-smooshing technique.  I added a bow made with White as Snow crinkle ribbon from DL.ART. The embossing folder is Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow, and for the sentiment, I die-cut the word from a scrap of my Distress Oxide background with Recollections Christmas Words.  Lastly I embellished the card with lots of snowflake sequins and gems.

I was inspired by the Cut it Up Holiday Tic-Tac-Toe board.  I went with Ornament, Embossing (Dry), and Gems.

I would also like to support the following challenges: ABC Christmas Y for Your Favourite Thing (critters on my cards) UE; Ally's Angels Christmas 3/3; Cardz TV 79 AG 3/3; Crafting by Designs Holiday AG 5/5; Crafty Creations AG 2/2; Crafty Gals Corner 5th Blogiversary AG 3/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Use Word Christmas UE; Creatalicious AG Optional Christmas with Snowflakes UE; Creative Moments AG Optional Christmas 3/3; Crop Stop December Link Party 46 (Tim Holtz Distress products found at Crop Stop here) 2/5; Cute Card Thursday AG UE; Die Cuttin' Divas Happy Holidays 3/3; DL.ART December Linky AG UE 1/d; DL.ART Thankful Thursday December Christmas 2/2 wk3; Double D Let it Snow 2/3; Happy Little Stampers Christmas Optional Snow UE; Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies UE; Jo's Scrap Shack Always AG 3/3; Lil Patch of Crafty Friends AG 3/3; Mod Squad Christmas or Winter Use a Metal Die 3/3; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 3/3; Penny's Paper-crafty AG 3/3; PINspirational AG 3/5; The Corrosive December AG 3/3; The Outlawz Monday GreetingsGCC121718 Christmas 3/3; Three Amigos Blog Hop Christmas/Winter/ Holidays UE; Through the Craft Room Door AG 2/2; Unstampabelles - Christmas Theme for your Country (The tradition represented here is hanging ornaments on the tree.  Also, it is winter here in Canada at Christmas time, so there is usually snow, depicted by the snowflakes) 3/3; Winter Wonderland AG Christmas 3/3; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 3/5 wk1

I also have that ornament die and love it too. Beautiful background, it's nice to have them on hand, it's just as easy to do a bunch as it is for one. Great use of the embossing folder and embellishemnts.

Barbara said...

Love the scene that you created inside the ornament frame. Good idea to start on next year's Christmas cards while you are still in the spirit. Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Double D ‘Let It Snow’ challenge! Good Luck
