Merry Christmas my Deer by Julie Lavalette


It's Julie here today hosting the blog. Lovely to have you popping over to see my post today.  I thought I would share over the next few weeks some cards I have made using some of the new dies from the July 2014 release, to give you some ideas for planning, dare I say it.....your Christmas cards.

My icicles were cut out in glitter card and I offset them slightly and layered them twice to give depth to my card.
My frosty trees are the base die from the build a christmas tree die. This die I love as can be used as a decorated tree or bare tree layered up or on its own, also as foliage with your flowers and the decorations as accents on other things. I cut my die out in various shades of card stock and sprayed with an adhesive and dipped into a fine glitter. I glued down the spine of the tree so it would lie flat to the paper and my branches were lifted up to add more dimension.



My window was cut out using the oval die and stamping snowflakes onto the frame. My winter scene was made using inks and embossing powders. To the side of the window you will see my Mistletoe, this was die cut out and glitter applied in the same way as the trees and I also place some liquid pearls onto it to represent the little white berries.





My deer I cut out in brown and white card which I'd applied glitter to and I then layered them together slightly offsetting to give a shadow effect. Finally, adorning my card with snowflakes and more glitter to finish.

  2. Julie,
    You have done an amazing job with your card, just amazing. Your attention to detail is phenomenal. I love the scene, and the paper background is so perfect. Would you please tell me what stamps you used for the snow scene, and the sentiment? Amazing job.

  3. Thanks for the lovely comments. The Christmas stamp is a Magnolia Tilda one. The icy scene was made using distress inks. I masked a circle for the moon, rubbed over with inks and had a ripped piece of paper in a hill shape that I rubbed ink at the edges and moved down the page. Hope this helps you.
