John Next Door - Deer Scenes

Hello friends, welcome and thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you are have enjoyed your week - it is Friday evening and very cool - temperature wise that is LOL! I am loving the heater atm!  I am really enjoying playing with the Happy Mail I got from John Lockwood aka John Next Door -and I have to say - they are wonderful to work with.

I have used a cream pre-cut triple fold window card for for this card front and base.  I started by sponging the centre using Imagine Memento Inks in Dandelion and Summer Sky.  The Die from the John Next Door Christmas Dies  - Deer Scenes has been cut/embossed using Kraft card stock and details sponged on using Imagine Memento Ink in Espresso Truffle and adhered to the inside of the Oval Aperture, using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

Next I have cut/embossed two of  the JOHN NEXT DOOR  Christmas Dies - Holly Corner using the inside of a recycled cereal box; the thickness is great for die cuts, and coloured the using Imagine Memento Inks in Bamboo Leaves and Rhubarb Stalk.centre.  The Holly Corners have been glued to the top and bottom of the Oval Aperture to create a frame, Clear Gloss has been added to the Holly Berries.

I have added random touches of white paint around the Holly Corner and also around the edges of the card front once it has been slightly sponged using Imagine Inks

The sentiment and tag are a little sneak peek of a set that is due for release at the end of August - I have used Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 6x4 Adhesive Sheets on my card stock, making it so easy to adhere the letters to the Tag.

 The Tag has been popped up onto the centre of the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Finishing off with some light splatters of white paint.
