Joyful Christmas.......

Great to make another Christmas Card...
Today's card has been inspired by 
The Muse Christmas Visions Challenge where
Cornelia has provided four amazing cards as inspiration.
My card.......
Top right card......
My interpretation.....
Loved the contemporary Deer with the lines, 
the fun hanging elements 
and the strip on the side of the card
I used satin card, which took the black soot distress ink really well 
through the stencil.
I also turned the stencil to get another antler.
I stamped over the black ink, whilst the stencil was still on 
and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.
 The strip at the bottom has been stamped with black and gold inks...
Thank goodness for the Misti.
Finishing off with a stamped sentiment 
and hi-lighting the little hanging stamped Christmas elements.
Hard to get photos as the gold ink looked yellow 
or the gold embossing looked too blingy.

Thank you so much for finding time to stop by.

Genius to stencil the deer that way--love this, Mac!

Cool, stylish and deliciously graphic, Mac ... with a touch of playfulness in the ornaments hanging from the antler and sentiment! Good to see the gingerbreadman has recovered!! Hugs, Anita :)

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

Now this is totally brilliant!!!!! Thanks for the pics to explain what you did here! That deer definitely needs a second antler - it looks like somebody amputated one... you clearly fixed that flaw!

So great you matched the linebirds in the silhouette of the deer. Finishing the bottom of the card with slanted belts beautifully coordinates with the rest of the card. Great design
