Red Deer

    This weeks Christmas card is inspired by the colour theme from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, a photo from CraftyHazelnut and Glitter from Holly Jolly.
    I began with some double sided sticky paper and cut out the deer using a Sizzix M&S die, then I stuck it on some gold card, removed the top layer and sprinkled red glitter all over it. The glitter stuck perfectly to the sticky sheet leaving me a crisp gold deer. I then cut out the circle with a Spellbinder die.
    The top of the bauble is the top part of a lantern die from Marianne cut in black card, the branch is also a Marianne die. Both bauble and branch are mounted on foam pads.
    The background is a very pale gold pearl card that has been embossed with a Creative Expressions folder. At each lattice junction I have put a small gold pearl using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue.
    There is a small gold mount layer under the lattice before being stuck on to a red card blank.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
