My acers are also looking beautiful
We have now reached week 5 of Linda of the Funkie Junkie's Christmas challenge. I am making 12 special Christmas cards.
Everyone is welcome to join in with The Funkie Junkie challenge which closes on 21st December by which time you need to have submitted all 12 creations using Linda's tags for inspiration. You can make anything at all. The full rules are over on her blog here . Linda offers 3 very generous prizes of gift vouchers to spend in her terrific on line shop, The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Do have a look at the link here .
Her inspiration tag can be seen here. I was inspired by the great black die cut she used, the pewter and silver colours and also the twinkling stars.
First I decided on my colours to make the backing card and blended these together.
For my twinkling stars I reached for my amazing Imagination Crafts Diamond sparkle medium. I used my Tim Holtz star stencil.
I wanted a large image in the centre of my card and found a deer which I had taken off a Christmas card last year. Us crafters are such thrifty souls aren't we. I decided to add some sparkle to it using silver embossing powder and a snowflake stamp.
and here is my finished card.
I had great fun cutting black icicles and holly leaves too. I continued the shine by adding diamond rhinestones to all the snowflakes.
A couple of close ups.
Perhaps I should call my reindeer Rudolph the diamond nosed reindeer? He would certainly shine out in a dark sky!
