Die Cuts & Stickers


cuttingedge

I usually have stamping on my cards, but this one is just die cuts (Penny Black deer from my Stamp Squad teamie, Judy)  &   
Spellbinders scallops. I double embossed the deer with gold & silver embossing powder.  I used Encore Metallic gold & silver inks to color the scallops.  The sentiment is done with DCWV letter stickers I've had for ages. They were a white sparkle & I added black Stickles.  Tiny black gems were added for the eyes & gold & silver pearls embellish the deer.  Don't think I've ever made a Christmas card with these colors, but the Merry Monday challenge provided great inspiration.  I'm also entering the Cutting Edge Blog Hop & Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for stopping by.

What a WOW card! I love the scallops, they look like they were cut from silver and gold paper. You did a great coloring job. The stickles added a lot to the stickers and the reindeer die is so pretty on the black cardstock.
