It's been another lovely day here - hope your day has been as good. I've been trying out something new again - this time a new shape of card using my Hougie Board. The instructions for the tri-fold shutter card are from the Hougie book, Everyone Needs A Hougie, which are easy to follow and here's what I've come up with.
From the front it looks like this. The blue base card is covered in the reindeer patterned design paper.
The greeting is stamped on to some base card using VersaMark and then heat embossed it in white. When this was cool I picked out the snowflakes with glue pen and added iridescent glitter and then I layered it onto embossed silver card. When the card is fully opened out this is what you see.
The Snowdeer is a digital stamp from Scrapbook Sisters, coloured with ProMarkers - using one of the ultra-fine nibs, won recently from Di of Pixie's Crafty Workshop - once again, many thanks Di. Makes colouring in difficult wee places so much easier. Isn't he cute and the DP could have been made with him in mind.
I gave him the Timmy treatment with some DI and then glittered up the snowflakes, and layered him on silver embossed card. The finishing touch is the snowflake ribbon trim, two silver snowflakes with blue gems added to the centres, and some blue card candy on the last panel.

The DP was an 12"x12" sheet so there's quite a large piece left over from this card, now added to my ever-growing pile of snippets. I think another snippet card is called for!
