I’m proud to announce that I have joined the ladies at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies on their Design Team! Be sure to head over and check out their fun challenge blog where every month they want you to feature any critter on your project! Fun, right? November’s challenge is sponsored by The Paper Shelter, where you can find a ton of incredible digi stamps and printables. Be sure to grab your beverage of choice and kick back awhile while you peruse their store!
Today’s cards (yes, plural!) uses a digi called Holy Night from The Paper Shelter. Isn’t this deer adorable?!? I had so much fun with this image I had to make 2 cards!!!
First up is the teal version… click on any picture to enlarge it.
I printed the digi on Bristol paper and colored with Prismacolor pencils, then die cut it with a Spellbinders circle die, then ink blended the edge. I layered the focal image on a Spellbinders small scallop circle die in white. I used Rinea foil paper in teal on the lower left corner and teal card stock on the upper right, separated by a dark teal strip. My sentiment is from Power Poppies Glistening Paperwhites set, stamped in teal and both the sentiment strip and its mat were cut at the same angle as the background. The snowflakes are from the Momenta Snowflake Border die set, which I cut apart to use individually. I added gems from Pretty Pink Posh’s Starry Sky mix. Now for the purple edition:
Mostly the same materials, but slightly different layout! This time the focal image and mat was die cut with Pink & Main’s stitched rounded rectangle dies, and with purple Rinea foil. I cut the background papers on a diagonal added strips of white glitter paper to separate the colors. More of the same snowflake dies, only this time embellished with flat back adhesive pearls from Want 2 Scrap. This one uses a sentiment from a stamp set by Holiday Trendz (aka Forever in Time) called Poinsettia.
So which version do you prefer? Please leave me a comment and let me know, and be sure to head over to 2CCC and our sponsor The Paper Shelter!
