The Funkie Junkie's 12 tags of Christmas #11 with a Jane's Journal twist

This is my penultimate card for this fabulous challenge I have been involved with over the last 11 quickly those weeks have flown by. Linda has extended the deadline to 8 Jan so there is still a chance to enter. If you would like to join in with this challenge the details are all here. There are also some great prizes up for grabs as the challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Linda's tag for inspiration this week can be seen here

I was drawn to the blues and browns I loved the #9 card I made for this. I also loved the deer and I just happened to have one left over from an earlier card. I also loved the really bright blue glitter effect. With these ideas in mind I set to with creating my card. Here is the end result.

I know you enjoy seeing my creative process so here it is again ;0)
First I created my backing card with Distress inks
This was a Blue Peter moment as I used the 2nd piece I created for #9

I used white embossing powder and my snowflakes stamps. I then heated the powder with my heat gun.

I then went over the card with Vintage photo ink and came out with this rather interesting effect.

I cut some snowflakes with glitter card and trees with plain white. I then got together my die cuts and had a play. I settled on using a LOTV tag sentiment in the end as I thought it looked best. If you would like to see how I made my deer they are my post here 

Here are a few close ups of my finished card. The gorgeous ivy die is one of my crafty winning from this year . I won a Joanna Sheen voucher and bought it. 

and here is my finished card again

I am still cracker making in what little spare time I get. I also spent yesterday with my Darling daughter and Daisy. We went Christmas shopping and just look at Daisy in her little hat.
I hope you are getting everything ready, 11 days to go.....a certain Man in the Red Suit will be loading up that sleigh very soon indeed. Enjoy your weekend and if you are watching Strictly, it is really hotting up now that we have reached the semi finals. Keep dancing  crafting ;0)

Back soon,

Bye for now,
