MC Aug/13 - CAS - Christmas Wonder

Yesterday I was searching through my die cuts and came across a bunch of deer & pine tree images... so pulled them out and they're sitting on my desk now. This is the result.

Because of those trees, I remembered having an On The Edge die of the trees (Sizzix "Tim's" die), so die cut in the middle of a large piece of cardstock. Cut a line connecting the trees so that I created a stencil.

My Card is 4.25"w x 5.5"h white cardstock. I positioned the stencil and only stenciled part of the design using Distress pads and sponges ("Pine Needles" & "Gathered Twigs"). Moved the stencil and repeated the process etc.

Die cut a Spellbinders "Labels 18" shape from another large piece of cardstock. Positioned the drop out piece where I wanted the stencil to land, placed the stencil on card matching the drop out piece, removed the drop out piece and temporarily taped down the stencil. Sponged "Broken China" all over. Removed the stencil.

Embossed the snowflake design (Sizzix  Tim's "Snowflurries" set).

Stamped the Xmas "Cuddlers" word stamps (Quietfire Design) using Versafine Olympian Green and touching here and there with Black Onyx for the word "Christmas". Only used the green of the word "Wonder"

The deer was cut with my electronic cutter, since I wanted a small deer... and sponged with the Twigs pad, then adhered to card.

This is a very easy repeatable card, once the stencils have been made.

And it fits for these challenges:
