Scenic Christmas

Scenic Christmas was inspired by Anne J.,
a stamper in our weekly group,
Wild Women of the West Stampers.
Now truly, the only thing wild about us is our name,
but I just love telling my husband that I am
going to spend the day with the Wild Women.
To recreate this card you will need
dark and light green cardstock, cut to A2 size.
Cut diagonally across each piece.
Now you have enough for two cards!
Arrange as shown in the picture and glue
to an A2 card front.
I glued narrow gold bands over the seams.
Below is a close up of the medallion that was
used in the center of the card.
I used an elongated oval punch (Emaginations) on white cardstock,
then lightly sponged the entire oval light blue,
flicking the edges to make them slightly darker.
A part of scenic stamp that had mountains in it
was used to create the light brown stamped background.
Punch pine trees from dark green.
This particular McGill punch has both trees on one punch.
I really like their product because it punches
easily and cleanly in cardstock.
Now punch out the deer (Martha Stewart)
in medium brown cardstock and lightly sponge
a little dark brown on it to add some texture.
I took a white pen (Inkssentials opaque white, Ranger)
and colored the antlers.
Glue it all together and attach to the card.
You can use pop dots (or whatever you use to create
3-d) and possibly add some sparkles to the trees
with a sparkle or glitter gel pen.
