I started by stamping the sentiment in Versamark ink on a cardbase.
I then sprinkled on Papermania’s superfine silver powder and heat set it.
The I die cut the deer out, this one’s from Yvonne creations, not sure if it’s readily available, I think it’s a Dutch brand, but similar dies are available across the industry, I’m sure.
I chose this one instead of, say the Memory box one I have woodland deer, as the antlers are less dainty.
For this technique to show you need a proper area to come through the die cut .
In the video I show you snowflakes and other Christmassy dies, but if the dies are too detailed, this technique won’t be as good ;-)
Any shape will do though, think of ornament dies, solid tree dies, igloo, etc.
I chose an array of silver and blue embossing powders as I wanted that frosty wintery snowflake feeling. Instead it turned out into a navy seals cameo outfit lol. Kidding I love the effect.
For this card I used the actual die cut, the little deer you see at the end of the video.
I used: Papermania superfine silver, Wow! Embossing powders in the colors: frozen, iced silver coastal, earthtone blueberry.
You can use a little spoon, a straw end your fingers, just disperse the powders onto the sticky area in a random fashion.
I sprinkle all the colors first, then heat set in one go. If i feel one color is too dominant, I point away the heat gun and sprinkle on some other colors and then point the heat towards it.
Mount the deer with foamsquares and adhere it to the card base.
I used a hole puncher to notch the sides of the card and wrapped some blue and white baker's twine, I opted for a bow to tie it, but it looked to cramped, to I just used sticky tape on the inside to secure it.
