Doe, a Deer

There's a challenge today at Impression Obsession to "Make it Sparkle" so I decided two quick wintery cards were in order.

Dies are my favorite way to make wow but easy cards for the holidays, so I thought I'd show you two different looks with this gorgeous Spotted Deer Frame Die.

FIRST, the sparkle! I used Concord & 9th no-shed glitter paper for the background - I just cut it to the same size as the frame and glued the die cut from black cardstock to the glitter paper. Then I mounted that on Key Lime cardstock. I love how detailed that image is.

Then, I took a Gel Press print and cut that for a brighter, more detailed look against white cardstock. Super fun. Neither require a greeting because there's so much to look at with the little scene it creates.

  1. It's appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it's time to be happy.

    I have read this post and if I could I want to suggest you some
    interesting things or tips. Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article.
    I desire to read even more things about it!

  2. This is a "wow" card, Lydia! I need to get a gel plate and try your techniques! Hugs!

  3. Enjoy your videos on youtube very much, and glad I was able to get to your blog. This is a super groovy die and it certainly created such stunning cards. Such different looks - one very wintery & icy, the other quite colorful. I wouldn't have thought of using the gelli print for this 2nd one, but it turned out very uniquely beautiful. TFS and for the inspiration. Also on your videos, I appreciate the clear enunciation you do, without ahs, ums, & extraneous time wasting chatter...and keeping your work in focus.
