Deer on a glade

Hi, Janja here!

Calm early morning silence. On a small glade, surrounded by birch trees and snow-capped spruces, deer briefly stop on a morning walk.
These and similar scenes can be created on cards, with the new CottageCutz Christmas dies.

For the card we need:
- white scalloped card base: 5.3 x 5.3" (13,5 x 13,5 cm), folded
- brown cardstock: 4.7 x 4.7" (12 x 12 cm)
- patterned paper: 4.5 x 4.5" (11,5 x 11,5 cm)
- white and brown cardstock
- Distress ink: Iced Spruce, Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo, Shabby Shutters, Moved Lawn, Peeled Paint

Cut out birch trees and deer with the die birch trees & deer.

Shadow blue paper and cut out several spruce trees with snowy tree die. Do not discard white cardstock from which we cut the snow. It will be used as a stencil for shading. 

Paste a snow in spruces. Place stencil from white cardstock on the snow-covered spruces and shadow them. 

Apply glitter with a clear glitter marker.

Under the light, I caught a gleam glitter.

When putting a card together, gradually shadow the background with Distress inks, to create depth.

With a green marker emphasize the edge between the snow and the green part of spruces. At the lower and upper part of the background apply white paint with a finger.

I hope you've enjoyed this card. Thanks for stopping by.

I would like to remind you on our CottageCutz challenge #5 - birthday card. Join us.

You have created a beautiful card Janja-love the snowy pine trees and how you colored them-the beginning of your post sounded like you were writing a poem to describe the winter scene- I loved it
