Winnie & Walter: Playdate #4

Hello!  Yikes!  It's been a long time since I have posted!  After my mad dash to submit cards for World Card Making Day, I kind of lost my mojo there for a while.  I was perusing blogs, which I often do for inspiration, when I came across Winnie & Walter's Playdate #4 color/picture prompt.  I think I audibly gasped when I saw this:

I went to a couple big Holiday Boutiques in the last month and these colors were everywhere! I have to say, for someone who admittedly dislikes glitter, this goldish/silver glitter combo that's going on lately completely draws me in. 

Anyway, here is the card I made:

I used my Silhouette to cut out the deer/tree glittery foreground.  I then went to work creating a shaker card.  I cut a hole in a separate sheet of cardstock that was slightly smaller than the deer oval.  I then adhered a piece of transparency to the back of it.  I used glossy accents to adhere the deer oval to the front of the shaker card window.  Next, I used Stampin' Up ink in Baja Breeze to shade in the card front.  I wanted it to be soft and muted.  Then I added some dark red sequins and some super fine white and green glitter to the center of the card.  I added some foam squares all over the back of the deer sheet then adhered it to the front of the card.  Then, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it with yummy silver embossing powder.  I didn't have another sentiment, so I just punched out out and put it on.  I think this card turned out so beautifully.

That is all for today.  I hope to be back crafting soon!  I have a lot of Christmas cards to finish!!  I hope my Amberican friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow.  <3 p="">
Until next time...
