Tim Holtz Reindeer and Snowflake Die Winter Card


Can you believe we are 2/3 of the way through the 12 Tags of Christmas with The Funkie Junkie already!?  When I saw Linda's week 7 tag I squealed in glee!  I adore a blue, silver and white winter card palette.  For this card, I just sat down to play with no end result in mind.  I started by making my Distress Ink background with Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot.


I had made a large sheet of aluminum foil adhered to cardstock for Tim's October tag and used the remainder to cut snowflakes from his new Paper Snowflakes thinlet set.  I layered two together for dimension.  Man, I'm in love with these, especially foiled!!!  I needed some filler so I embossed the snowflake from the Scribble Woodlands set using ultra thick silver embossing powder.


I decided the Prancing Deer die would make a suitable replacement since I don't have the wonderful die Linda used.  I covered him with IndigoBlu's Slap It On mixed with Distress Rock Candy Glitter.  I really love the effect!


Last, I added one of Tim's small talk occasions stickers and his tinsel ribbon.  I hope you like my version, it was really fun to make.  Find all of the supplies at The Funkie Junkie Boutique today and enter this challenge for a chance to win a gift card to the shop.

Hi Autumn! I'm loving your winter tag!! Like you, I'm a fan of blue and silver. Those snowflakes are beeeautiful...and I have the die, so yipee!!.. I'm trying some foiled snowflakes! The deer is so elegant and dimensional with the Slap it On/Rock Candy glitter mix. I bet the sparkle is gorgeous in real life. It's a;ways a pleasure to stop in and see what you've been creating. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Hugs,

Autumn, I love your version of Linda's blue and silver tag! That deer looks so festive with this glittery coat, and your foiled snowflakes are fantastic! I have to agree with you about those snowflakes--that is one of my favorite new dies. Your wintry background is to die for and the addition of the jingle bell, twine and tinsel makes this a favorite of mine! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Hugs!
