Hi, Diane with you today!
We had our first big snowfall last week
and the trees were covered with fresh fallen snow.
We also had a couple of deer visit,
almost to the front door.
A very inspiring scene to create with,
so that is what I did!

for my background.
I cut a Memory Box Medium Forest Archway from

Next is the gorgeous snow covered and glittery tree.
I cut Memory Box Frosted Christmas Tree from 
I left the tree in the die, the coated it very heavily with
I used my Palette Knife to swirl the paste around a bit,
then carefully took the die cut out,
being careful not to touch the paste.
I then sprinkled Crystal Ice Glitter on 
and once dry attached Baby Rhinestones -  Turquoise.

Just make sure to quickly wash out your die and spatula when done.
You will find the paste dries very quickly.

I cut the deer using Impression Obsession Small Deer
I also cut the deer from a black craft foam to add height
and a bit of shadow behind them.

I hope you will give this card a try as it is very quick
to put together but looks beautiful when done.

Thank you for visiting with me today!
