It's Julia here - back with a short tutorial showing how I made my card for this month's Star Light Star Bright challenge!
First I die cut all my pieces - the starry sky, the reindeer family and the landscapes.
To create snowy tops to the landscape pieces I inked the top edges with Versamark and then embossed with Shabby White Frantage Embossing Powder.
I die cut the stars out of a panel of blue Core-dinations paper and layered it over a panel of Metallic Silver Paper. I adhered the landscape pieces along the bottom. I had die cut the deer out of gold metallic paper - and then decided I wanted them to have textured fur coats! So I embossed them with Dirty Sand Baked Texture Embossing powder.
For the large star in the sky - I used a 3D star die. It was larger than I wanted so after I die cut it out of silver metallic paper, I drew lines along all of the edges about 1/4" in and cut on the lines to make the star smaller.
I creased the star on the score lines and adhered it to the starry night sky using a thick foam dot so the dimension of the star wouldn't get flattened! I adhered the deer with thinner foam dots.
And to finish it off - I added a Metallic Sticker/Holiday Talk.
