Design Team Make - 25th August 2018 (Christmas in August) - My Time To Craft Challenge

The prompt for the "My Time To Craft" challenge for 25th August 2018 is "Christmas In August".  Please do pop over and take a look at the other fabulous makes by the Design Team and maybe take part yourself?

It seems very odd to be creating Christmas cards at this time of year.  I tend to leave it till late September/October time, but it does allow me to re-visit my festive goodies that have been packed away for months.

I started off by masking a moon and then painting the sky using three shades of Distress Inks.  I then removed the moon mask and gently dabbed a pale yellow and dark grey shades of Distress Ink.

The deer image is part of a Stampin' Up set called "Christmas Deer" which I stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia ink.

I tore card to create an uneven snowscape at the base of the Deers feet.  I then used a Memorybox die called "Frostyville Border" to cut the intricate frosty detail.

I added extra star/snowflakes to the card and then some dots using a white Signo pen to replicate falling snow.  I added some dots of Stickles to give a subtle glitter to the snowflakes and the decorative border (I'm not sure it shows in this photograph).

Finally, I added a sentiment using a sentiment from another Stampin' Up set called "Winter Memories".
