City Crafter Challenge Blog - Die it

Our new challenge at City Crafter is to create a project using no stamping or designer paper.

This was actually my second attempt at my DT card , my first, failed attempt, is here.

I'd like to acknowledge that I took some inspiration for this card from a card by Jennifer McGuire (of whom I am a bit of a fan), but I used different materials and techniques and added my own twists.

In Silhouette Studio software, I welded a frame and some fir trees together, cut it out and made a window with snowfall acetate. I masked the moon and made an inky sky. Then I added a die-cut stag and sentiment.

I hope you will visit us at City Crafter, see the work of our DT and our Special Guest Star , Marcia Hill ...and join in the challenge.

I remember your failed attempt, I loved it and thought that was a lucky mishap!
This one has a totally different style, classy, traditional and I love the peaceful looking scene. And you know by now I love reindeer:)
