Hi there! Today I have a Christmas card to share featuring a die cut deer which I heat embossed with embossing enamel. I'm joining along with this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge where the theme is All Creatures Great and Small:
To create the patterned background, I applied ink to an embossing folder, then sent it through my die cut machine:
I'm joining along with the following challenges:
For sketch inspiration, Freshly Made Sketches:
For color inspiration: the card Concept challenge a Clean and Layered card:
and the November CAS Mix Up challenge: (stamping, glitter, heat embossing, dry embossing, a die cut)
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Oh what a great card, Mona! I've never gotten such a wonderful result with inking an embossing folder, but think I'll try it again. The deer is just fabulous & so is the poinsettia! Enjoy your weekend, my friend!

Great background technique!! (It never works for me when I do it so I'm in awe of others who can make it work) And I love the texture that shows in your deer. Great card! Thanks so much for joining us at The Card Concept.
