Ok, so maybe you need just one more Christmas card? or you already have enough (yay for you!) but whatever kind of card you may need - we've got some inspiration for you over at the December CAS Mix Up Challenge! You have until 12/24 to link up your card!
For today's card, I used: stamping, die cuts, heat embossing and sponging - while still keeping it CAS leaving lots of open space!
I die cut the deer out of matboard and then embossed it with Platinum UTEE - Ultra Thick Embossing Enamels, it's something I had in my stash - but there is something similar available at Stampendous. Some of the thick enamel powder tends to blow off as you are heating it - so there were some white spots left on the deer. I just sponged over thespots with Ranger Distress Vintage Photo and Hickory Smoke Inks. Then rubbed the deer with a paper towel to remove the ink from the enamel.
The tree background die cut is from the Mix & Mat Plaid Die from PTI. The sentiment is Heaven Sings from Memory Box (an old rubber stamp!)
So I hope you will have a chance amid your holiday preparations to join us in the CAS Mix Up Challenge - you have until 12/24 to link up your card!
Wishing everyone very happy and blessed holidays!
