this card by Merrilee. I changed the sizes of things up a little bit but I kept the number of matts the same. I also rotated it and used the brad for my sentiment, instead of the three tree brads and sentiment she had. I also added ribbon which she did not use on her card. I started by creating a card base and then inked the edges with Adirondack Cranberry ink (I love the velvety illusion this gives), I added a layer of Kaisercraft Winter Wonderland Let it Snow paper, and stitched the edges of it. Before adhering it I added a length of red ribbon and a bow to the right hand side of the card I then added the bluey grey paper that I edged with stardust glitter glue and glitter (yes I glittered the glitter) and tucked it under the bow. I then stamped the Stampavie Dearest Deer stamp, coloured it with Rembrandt Polycolor pencils and Sansodor. I added a little bit of glitter to the snow using a Sakura glue pen. I matted that with a mat I inked with the cranberry ink as well and stitched around the stamped image. Using foam adhesive I mounted this on the center of the card under the ribbon. Lastly I added the Holiday Wishes brad on top of the bow.
