Christmas Scene


The last visit I made to my local craft store ended up with this pretty embossing folder coming home with me. It's by Crafter's Companion and it's a 3D Christmas Magic ef. I used a Soft Sky card base, adding some WOS to the trees that will not show up on any photograph I take, so you'll just have to take my word for it that it's got a very pretty subtle shimmer. I added a light touch of Copic coloring to the top and bottom to break up all the white. The 3 deer were colored with a tan marker and I dotted an eye and nose on the largest deer. I put two matching die cuts inside that say "Merry Christmas" and "Peace on Earth." I love this pretty wintry scene so I hope to finish a few more of these before Christmas gets here.
I'll share this with the following challenges:

That is a neat embossing folder! I really like the soft colors you added. I know what you mean about the wink of Stella not showing up in photos. I’m sure it does add that special something!
