Memory Box Deer Trio - another Fan Club card
Hi blogging friends
ETA: I have had a couple of enquiries about the Cuttlebug Kars Snowflakes embossing folder. I recently discovered that this folder is retired and the chances of finding one is very unlikely. However, Sizzix has a folder set called Christmas Words and Dots set which is readily available which you could substitute. Please see this link at Sizzix HERE for more information - and here is a picture of the set:
I made a 2nd card for the Splitcoaststampers Christmas Fan Club Challenge of silver - plus this is my entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of Emboss it (heat and/or dry embossing) + the option of using Cuttlebug/Provocraft or Sizzix products (I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder). I am also entering my card in the Crimbo Crackers Challenge 50 of Quick and Easy.
As you can see, I am still playing with my Memory Box Deer Trio die! And again, I went for very clean and simple. The beautiful sentiment is by Hero Arts from their Merry Christmas Tree clear set. I rubbed my embossing buddy across the white cardstock then stamped the sentiment with Versamark Watermark ink and heat-set it using silver embossing powder.
The background embossing is a Cuttlebug embossing folder - Kars Snowflake - a very pretty folder don't you think? It is such a shame this folder is retired but at least you can substitute the Sizzix embossing folder instead. I love how the embossing looks like falling snow.
The silver strip on the card bottom is silver glitter cardstock and was punched using an EK Success Scalloped Scallops border punch. I diecut a My Favorite Things Die-namics snowflake, added a silver rhinestone to the centre and popped the snowflake up on dimensionals.
Lastly, I tied on some Darice Glitz silver cord and added some Fray Stop to the cut ends.
Finished size is 4-3/4" across and 4-1/2" deep or 120mm x 110mm if you are metric.
Thanks for visiting my blog today. Have you started your Christmas cards yet?
