'Tis The Season To Be Jolly

We were sitting around a campfire and my friend introudced me to this wonderful couple.  Tom and Lisa.  Tom is from Germany and every time he used the word  and it was und.  Everytime I heard und I had a little smile on my face.  He told me how he met another guy around the campfire.  Tom wanted to go hunting and this guy taught him how to hunt.  They have been hunting ever since on the hill.  The hill was where we were at having the campfire.

Later, we got to talking about stamping cards.  They invited me and my friend over to make the best dumplings.  I wanted to make them a Christmas card and I thought this was perfect

I used a digital image called "Holiday Deer" from MHK Designs.  I printed it two times.  The first layer is my base.  I cut out the area around the deer's horns so I could make a window for my sentiment.  The second print was cut apart to lift some boughs.  I used a wood grain embossing folder with black ink to create the wood panel.  Then I stamped the sentiment and embossed it with black.   I had to trim a little on the design to make sure all the sentiment showed. I put a piece of acetate between the image and wood grain panel.  I added glitter to the mountain tops and boughs.  Then I put three red gems for a pop of color.

I was forced to clean my craft room to find a piece of acetate!!   I also need some acetate because I made my grandson a little card on the Cricut.  I put the acetate behind the dino skeleton to make it look like an Xray!!

Stamps Used: MHK Designs and a vintage sentiment stamp.

'Tis The Season is linked to"
The Male Room my stash is apparently the acetate.  I also have the wood grain background made up and looking for a card to use it on.

  13. Both are awesome cards Jerrie. I am going to have to visit my boss's Etsy shop to check out this image because I love what you have created with it. Such a fabulous Christmas card, beautifully coloured image and the background is wonderful too. The dinosaur card is fabulous too and I have some family members who would love that one - so clever to make your card look like an X-ray. Thank you so much for entering our November Challenge.
