Holiday Joy

It's my second post today, I know, but I needed to get this card up to make it in time for two challenges.  Some of you may not know this but I LOVE making Christmas cards.  I make them all year long.  So, I was excited to discover two challenge blogs that are all about making Christmas cards.  I'm linking up this card to these two challenges.  The first is Jingle Belles:  Ho Ho H2O challenge:  create a holiday card which features icicles, snow, frozen ponds, or any water-related imageOR use water-based products.  The second challenge is Festive Fridays.  They had a colour theme of white, silver and red.  Well, here it is.....

I had some trouble with this card but managed to fix it up alright.  I really need to get a new winter tree stamp or two.  I know that Hero Arts has some that are nice.  Hmmm, my birthday is coming up. ;-).   So, how I did this was stamped the tree stamps and then embossed in silver.  Cut some card stock for the hills and put some glitter on them.  I stamped the deer before the glitter.  The deer is actually a smaller part of a larger stamp from Inkadinkado's Utopiary set.  The sentiment from HA was stamped then layered everything on the red paper then the card base.  I think it turned out okay.

Well, better get this linked up.  Have a fabulous day!
