Tips & Tricks:

This is really a very easy card to recreate!  It’s just a little stamping and some die cutting.  With the Card Front builder thinlits the hardest part of this card was lining up the decorative broader thinlit dies.  The decorative boarder is just one die that you line up with the two little holes at the end to create the boarder.  Which fits a card front sized at 5 1/4 x 4; which mine is in Basic Black cardstock.  The trees and deer are cut out using other dies.  I stamped the deer from the stamp set in Soft Suede classic ink and cut it out using the little framelit.  The trees are cut out using the framelits in Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.

The center image was stamped with the Lemon Lime Twist Classic Ink Pad and a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.   I inked the words up with Lemon Lime Twist first and cleaned off the top part with a baby wipe and paper towel and then inked it up using the marker.   Then I stamped it down on the largest stitched circle cut in Whisper White cardstock.   I added the Metallic enamel stars in gold to add a pop of slimmer.

Once I had the stitched circle in place the card needed just a little more bling to the card and I wanted to give the impression of a night sky and the circle represent the moon.  So at that point I added some flicks of the clear wink of stella brush pen by squeezing the glitter into the well of the pen and flicking the brush tip on the inside of the cap.  This allowed for the right amount of splatters to hit the card front and not over due it.  This technique added just the right amount of extra sparkle to the card front.   The wink of stella is very hard to see in the photograph.

After it had dried I added the trees with some snail on the back of the and attached them to right above the decorative boarder.   I then added the little deer with the new mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.   I did cut one of them in half to make sure that it wasn’t showing through:  One would have been enough but I wanted to make sure it was nice and secure and evenly popped up.
