German samples - for Christmas

Good morning all,

How is the bank holiday going?  Has it rained yet?  It has here a bit, but we have had some lovely sunshine too, so can't complain.  

Have you seen that Barbara is doing the Ice Bucket challenge to raise awareness and money for research into ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) probably better known as Motor Neurone Disease, a horrible degenerative disease which leaves you paralysed.  She has set up a page to donate if you would like to - see her facebook page for more details.

Today's card is the first of the samples I did for the Christmas show on German TV.....

I used a combination of the kits from the show:
Deer from the Winter Wonderland set,
the trees are the repositional trees set you get three trees on the mount, but you can take them off to use individually
The star was in the set with the log cabin

I decided to do a black and white card - I stamped the lines of trees using a copy paper mask, make sure the bottom part of the tree is on the mask and stamp a couple of times without re-inking to get the faded trees more in the distance
Stamp the deer in place and the star, then use the copy paper to add bits of shadow
I put a gem in the centre of the star and added some glitter to the trees and snow
The 'Frohe Weihnachten' greeting comes from the International Christmas Greeting set

Hope you like it thanks very much for visiting  Janet xx
