Memory Box Deer Trio - Christmas Fan Club card

Hi blogging friendsFrom Millan.Net

This is my card for the Splitcoaststampers September Christmas Fan Club challenge of silver - plus the ABC Challenge of Unlimited (Anything Goes) and the Papertake Weekly Challenge of Anything Goes (plus the option of making a Christmas card/project).

I went for very clean and simple as you can see.  I absolutely LOVE the Memory Box Deer Trio die - it's so pretty don't you think?  I diecut the deer from silver glitter cardstock and left a large enough piece of the glitter cardstock so I had enough room on it to add my sentiment.  The ground underneath the deer is a little wavy in case you are thinking I cut it unevenly.   I used Ranger wonder tape to attach the glitter cardstock to my white cardstock as I find that normal doublesided tape doesn't adhere very well to the glitter cardstock.  The wonder tape is very sticky and works really well.

I used my embossing buddy to wipe across the sentiment panel then stamped the sentiment with Versamark Watermark ink and heat-set it using silver embossing powder.  I used my Perfect Layers Tools to cut a 1/16" border around the sentiment panel.

The left-hand side snowflake is the smallest snowflake die from the Snowflake Trio die set by My Favorite Things and the one on the right is a Cuttlebug die.  I added a silver rhinestone to the centres then popped the snowflakes up on dimensionals.

Lastly, I corner-punched the bottom of the card then tied on some silver cord.  I added Fray Stop to the cut ends to stop them from fraying.
Thanks for stopping by.  Hope to see you again very soon.
