Silvery Forest!

Hello there Everyone,  I hope you are well and enjoying your weekend.
A quiet one for Puss and me,Alistair is away and will be back this evening, but I've got loads done, not to mention in charge of the TV

Thanks to everyone who left lovely comments on my last post, I do appreciate each and every one of them.

It's been a week since I was last here,  I had nothing to post, lots to finish though, so will get around to sharing them later, but today I managed to make a Christmas card with one of Sheena Douglass's new embossing folders, and it was quick to do too;
Isn't this just such a pretty EF,I do love deers.
I embossed platinum card and lightly sanded it back, which gave a hint of white. Next I mounted it on to Black Graphite card, then on to someone lovely Dovecraft paper.
Die cut some trees and added a sentiment stamped on to velum, finished off with a few gems and stickies for the trees.
Hope you like it.

I would like to enter my card into the  https://scrapsoflifebyscrappymo.blogspot.co.uk/2017/08/august-rudolph-days-challenge.html

Well that's all from me for now, take care and see you soon.

Yes that embossing folder is fabulous. What a great effect to emboss on the platinum card and lightly sand it back. Love the contemporary trees too on your gorgeous card x

Meant to say...hope you enjoyed being in charge of the remote whilst Alistair was away and as we are Frasers 'enjoyed' outlander this week and thank you for putting us onto it x (Hesitant to use the word enjoy but hopefully you'll understand? x)

Hi Kate,
oh I love this wonderful card, and your fab embossed design is excellent.
Such a wonderful look with the sanding I alsmost thought it was parchment till I read you instructions.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Love how you have made this card Kate, a great technique. A very pretty winter scene. I love deer too, they always add something special to a Winter scene I think. Have a good week my friend.
Hugs Jennifer xx.

This is such a pretty card. I love deer as well and these are lovely.
I also really like the sentiment strip and the way you tucked it under the front of the card.


Thanks for taking part in the August Rudolph Days Challenge. Love to see you over here...

How beautiful card! I love your silver forest, Kate. The snow and the deers are adorable. And how pretty trees! Kisses, my friend.

These deer are amazing! I love how you've torn the piece for the sentiment and how it acts to divide the meadow from the hill!
