Christmas Carols

Merry Christmas Eve and welcome to day 24 of my 25 days of Christmas Inspiration series. I can't believe that it is already Christmas eve, I hope you are ready and have your shopping done because Santa is on his way.

Today's card features a new Christmas set by Stampin Up, Christmas Carols. 
To make this card, I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel cut down with a stitched die. I used Night of Navy and Tempting Turquoise to create my background leaving some white at the bottom for the snow covered ground. After I created the background and let them dry, using the Mini MISTI, I stamped the greeting in Versamark ink and embossed it in white (I always use my MISTI when I emboss to make sure I get a good impression)  Next I splattered some water across the front and dabbed it with a paper towel to get the snowfall look. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the trees in white glimmer paper. To finish the card I stamped the deer in Soft Suede and cut him out with the coordinating die and tucked him behind a snow covered tree. 

This is my main Christmas card this year but I didn't get a chance to get a lot of them done, next year I have to either start earlier or make it a little more simpler. Some of you will be receiving this one and others a water/new years card.
