In the Quiet Forest . . .

Hello All!
Darlene with you today sharing a fun holiday creation 
using dies from the Cheapo Dies Store.

 Today, I've once again used TWO Cheapo dies
for my creation.

Reindeer Scene


Holly Branch

I began my creation by die cutting the Reindeer Scene twice from white card stock.  While the one was still in the die, I
colored the pieces that would typically 'fall out' with a darker blue alcohol marker.  Then very carefully removed it from the die trying to keep as many 'fall out' pieces in tact as possible. 

Next I glued my reindeer scene to a die cut circle and reinserted the pieces that fell out.  Once it was all adhered to the circular panel, I went over the pop out pieces again with a lighter blue alcohol marker.

 Lastly I glued the 2nd white reindeer panel over top to hide the mis-coloring and create a clean image.

I have used a 3d snowflake embossing folder as the background for my focus image and also matted my reindeer scene using another circular die cut from snowflake designer paper.  Once this was all together, I decided to add the Holly Branch.

The branch was die cut from a scrap of white card stock then colored using markers and glued to the lower front of my card.  I like how it mimics the scrolly antlers of the deer.

I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared today, and, if you're not familiar with Cheapo Dies, you are missing out!!!
