Seeing Stars

     Another week , another CASE-ing Christmas challenge. This time we have a lovely card by DaenY's to case. I struggled a little with this one, not sure why, but when I saw a challenge for stars I was set.
     I chose to use the sketch of DaenY's card and join a few other challenges with colour schemes and themes.
     The backing card is embossed with stars and mounted on some green holly paper from my Christmas stash. I also used this green paper to die cut two Sizzix Tattered Banners, there is a brown banner too. The banners are all glued on to the backing card.
     The star is die cut using a Spellbinder set and white glitter card. The outside star is stuck down on to the backing card but the solid star is mounted on foam pads.
     I stuck the backing panel on to a white 7x5 card blank and added some tiny green star gems to a few of the embossed stars to give it a little twinkle.
     The deer looks black but is actually green, I have used some Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder called Lapis Black which gives him a lovely sheen.
     I have used Stix2 foam pads to mount the deer, where his head is only has one layer of pad but his legs needed two layers because the star was already raised.
     The greeting is a silver peel off coloured brown with an alcohol marker, I couldn't find a greeting stamp I liked that was small enough.
     I hope you like my case card, pop over to the CASE-ing Christmas blog to see lots of gorgeous ideas from the team, then come and join us with your creation.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Tis' The Season - Nature's Colours (green & brown)
ABC Christmas - D is For Die Cuts
Christmas Card Challenges - Anything Goes
