Hi stampers! It's time once again for a Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge! Challenge #228 is an inspiration challenge! These images could play out more Christmas cards or just a wintry feel.
I chose to make a shaker card using a little deer cut out from the Home For Christmas DSP, the Sleigh Ride edgelits, and the sky is also DSP from Home For Christmas. I added gold glitter for my shaker because this little deer (and the paper in general) has a retro 60's kind of feel to it. Gold was BIG in the 60's.
For the wooded element, I ran a piece of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock through my big shot with the Into the Woods embossing folder. Later I took my brayer, inked up with white ink, and ran it lightly over the raised part. This gives the trees their white birch look.
Lastly, I added a wooden snowflake with a small, gold brad attached to the center and some red woven satin ribbon to mimic the ribbon around the deer's neck.
I hope you find time to join us and participate in the challenge! Remember, you have two weeks to play along!
Thanks for taking a peek!
