Interlocking Cracked Glass Deer ~ CMCC65

Wednesday has sneaked around again so that means it's time for another Colour Me challenge!!!  This week we are going monocromatic with Soft Sky.  I tried my hardest to keep my colors only Soft Sky and Vanilla, but I finally relented and added some Sahara Sand DSP in there.  It looked way better to me that way! I used this particular peice (which is retired and I don't know the name of) because I thought it sort of looked like twisty antlers.
I've had this idea for this cracked glass deer head for a while now.  The deer head from {Remembering Christmas} is one of my very favorite stamps of all time from Stampin' Up.  I know it's supposed to be a Christmas stamp and it's retired, but who cares!  I love it, so I'm gonna use it!!!!
The cracked glass technique has been around for ages, but it's such a fun one!  
Here's a link for the tutorial if you'd like to try it for yourself and want to know how.
To make the deer head, I stamped it in white, fussy cut it out and added the layers and layers of glassy glaze embossing powder that it takes for this technique.  I adhered it to the chevron oval with Fast Fuse, which is a little stronger adhesive, just because the image tends to get a little heavy with all the layers of embossing on it.

I also made this card an interlocking gate fold, just to make it a tad more interesting.  It puts a fun spin on it!

Make sure you stop by these ladies' blogs and check out their awesome creations!
