Now that my friend Terese (aka Jakester here on SCS) in Canada has my Christmas card in her hot little hands, I can now share it here.
The aqua glitter cardstock was diecut using my Big Shot and the My Favorite Things Joy Photo Card Frame Die-namics die.
The deer and trees are a die by Cottage Cutz - Snow Swept Border. The layers of snow were made using a set of 2 dies by MFT called Snow Drifts. The largest snowflake is by Simon Says Stamp and the smallest snowflake is by Impression Obsession. None of these layers are up on dimensionals - they have simply been adhered using doublesided tape. The shadows in the photograph may give you the impression that the layers are built up but in actual fact, the card is really flat.
The dry-embossed bottom panel is a RETIRED Cuttlebug embossing folder: Kars Snowflake - which is extremely difficult to find. I have a suggestion for an alternative EF that you can use if you click on my blog post below.
Once I had embossed my card front, I attached the scene/frame then just trimmed up the edges of the white cardstock base so that I had a thin border around the aqua frame although the angle of the photo makes it look a little uneven. My white card bases are bigger than a Cuttlebug embossing folder which means I can just have the dry embossing within the scene and not spill over onto the card edges.
