Katzelkraft DT Card - Christmas


Hi everyone! Another Christmas card for Katzelkraft DT blog from me today using the very beautiful [they're all beautiful, sigh :)] deer image from Nuit de Noel plate and the snowflake from Santa 01 plate. Katzelkraft stamps are also available in the UK from The Craft Barn.



The deer image from the set is stamped using Versamark ink and then embossed with white detail embossing powder. Around the image and inside the card I've stamped with the snowflake stamp and white ink and I've also sponged some of the ink around the edges of the image panel and the card base. The image was cut using a Nestabilities labels die and I also used the largest die in the set to cut an edge on to the right side of the card.

 I dyed my white ribbon by spraying with two colours of glimmer mist, scrunching it up and leaving it to dry out. When dry and unravelled the ribbon has a lovely sparkle and a vintage look and you can make it more vintage looking by using coffee grounds as part of the process, my blog friend Michele has a lovely tutorial here on how to do it. To embellish I added some half pearls and Stickles glitter glue around the image and the image panel was popped up on dimension tape.
