Snow Globe Deer

Hello and welcome!  Today I'm slipping in on the final hours of a new challenge - the Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge.  It's twice monthly and brought to us by the tireless (this is their 4th blog!) and oh-so-talented Diane and Darlene!  I just found out about it today (thanks Michele) and saw that I had a couple of hours left to join in.  Be sure to head over there and check it out.  From the participation, it looks like they have another hit on their hands!

I made this card a few days ago just for fun, so it was great to have on hand for the challenge. I used a cute new Stamping Bella stamp set with a snow globe and three sets of critters that can be stamped inside of it.  I decided to go with the darling little deer. 

Didn't I say they were cute?  These are very tiny images, so I did very simple Copic coloring, including the background and the base for the snow globe.  And of course, what's a snow globe with out snow? I created the snow using a white gel pen.  When the coloring was complete, I fussy out the image.

Next a panel of white was sprayed with some shimmer spray (photos don't pick that up unfortunately), embossed with a snow embossing folder, die cut with on of the Altenew Mix and Match Frames dies, then mounted on the navy card base with foam tape.  The sentiments, which are from a different stamp set, were white heat embossed on navy then trimmed out.  First the globe was added to the panel with thin foam tape, then the sentiments were added, also with thin foam tape to finish things off.

Thanks for taking time to visit, I really appreciate it!  Be sure to use the link above and check out this fun new challenge!

I'm pleased as punch that you had this cutie on hand to play along - isn't this going to be a fun challenge? I'm already in love with their use of the mood board - that, or a photo, is my favorite jumpstart to design!
Your little deer are as cute as they can be, Stef! Wow. I can't get a white gel pen to make one highlight - I don't have the right touch apparently?
