Memory Box Deer Trio - another Fan Club card

Hi blogging friends From Millan.Net

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?
